  • Description In two locations, Brooklyn Historical Society offers multiple spaces ready to be transformed for your next event.

    Located in Brooklyn Heights near Borough Hall and major subway lines, our Pierrepont Street location is readily accessible from all five boroughs. With recently renovated, state-of-the-art facilities, it is often the site of nonprofit fund-raisers, staff development trainings, brand launches, and holiday parties, to name just a few. The Great Hall, Othmer Library, and lower-level classroom offer three distinct spaces.

    BHS DUMBO is housed in the historic Empire Stores building near Brooklyn Bridge Park. This unique site will impress your guests with interactive displays and a taste of the waterfront’s storied past.
