Brooklyn Historical Society DUMBO
< Back To Previous

Located in the historic Empire Stores building in the heart of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn Historical Society DUMBO is a new cultural destination dedicated to highlighting the stories of Brooklyn's waterfront. The inaugural exhibition, “Shifting Perspectives: Photographs of Brooklyn’s Waterfront,” looks at the shore as inspiration to dozens of photographers throughout time. This will be followed by “Waterfront,” a long-term exhibition exploring the history of everything along the waterfront—the workers, artists, industries, activists, innovators, families, neighborhoods, and ecosystems.
