The photo of the week depicts the front entrance to Long Island Historical Society in 1961. This photograph is from the Long Island Historical Society photographs collection comprised of photographs from 1925 to 1980 that relate to the historic building and activities of the Long Island Historical Society (now Brooklyn Historical Society). To view more photographs from this collection, check out this gallery.
Don’t forget that Brooklyn Historical Society now has two locations. In addition to the Pierrepont location, BHS has opened a second location in DUMBO. All summer long, BHS DUMBO offers free summer Friday hours (6-9pm). We hope you will visit us at both locations!
