Location Shoots

Housed in an 1881 landmark building in the brownstone neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights, the Brooklyn Historical Society provides several ideal settings for professional film and photo shoots.

From hand-carved bookshelves and period lighting fixtures to the modern, white loftlike space in the Great Hall, BHS is tailor-made to transform to fit your script or storyboard. We have recently been the site for a range of productions, including BlacKKKlansman, Law & Order: SVU, Gotham, and She’s Gotta Have It. Recent fashion photo shoots include The Knot and Refinery 29.

Commercial, documentary, and still photography are allowed in most spaces and our exterior facade. Holding and hair and makeup space are available on our first floor and lower level. If you are a location manager or scout and would like more information about availability, rates, insurance requirements, or to schedule a location scout, please email [email protected]
