Check Out 'Brooklyn Is My Neighborhood' Video -- Story of Brooklyn Heights

The excellent video “Brooklyn Is My Neighborhood/ The Story of New York’s First Historic District,” produced by Martin L Schneider and Karl Junkersfeld, tells the story of how Brooklyn Heights became the city's first protected historic district. It can be seen at the Brooklyn Heights Blog

The video serves as a prelude to Schneider’s article “Battling for Brooklyn Heights/ 1958-1965." The article was originally published in serial form in the Brooklyn Heights Press in 1993. Schneider has since updated it, and it will be available soon as an illustrated book.
