A statement from BHS President and CEO Deborah Schwartz
The staff and Board of Brooklyn Historical Society are devastated by the news of the fire at 70 Mulberry Street, where MOCA stored its invaluable collections. We share MOCA’s commitment to the importance of local history, and we are prepared to help in any way we can as our colleagues establish their path to recovery. From its founding, MOCA has been a bold and creative voice in the museum field, never shrinking from the next challenge in telling the resilient stories of community. MOCA will need resources and expertise to get through this tragedy. Friends of BHS, here is a quick link to MOCA’s gofundme campaign, if you are inclined to support what will be an arduous path to restoration for this unique history museum.
