From the BHS Archives
Each week, we share an interesting or curious image from the BHS Archives on the BHS Blog.
Photo of the Week:
Brooklyn Heights Promenade
The Photo of the Week depicts the breathtaking view of the Manhattan skyline from the Brooklyn Heighs Promenade, located only a few blocks from BHS. The photo was taken by Edna Glyde around 1964. Glyde was a resident of Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights, and many of her photographs depict street scenes throughout the neighborhood. Learn how Glyde achieved the unique tone of this photograph (specifically the rich blue tones) on the BHS Blog...
