We are thrilled to announce that our collection of 73 design competition and presentation drawings for the construction of Brooklyn Historical Society (formerly Long Island Historical Society) are now digitized and available for viewing online here! Thanks to a generous grant from the Luce Foundation, you can now read about the competition and our historic building while viewing these beautiful drawings.
The Long Island Star, published from 1809-1863, is now fully digitized and available online. Thanks to a grant from the Gerry Charitable Trust, you can now search the historic newspaper's articles here.
