Muslims in Brooklyn

Brooklyn is currently home to more Muslim houses of worship than any other borough in New York City, and the vibrant Muslim population in Brooklyn continues to grow. This public history project amplifies the stories of Muslim Brooklynites and contextualizes them in the broader histories of all Brooklynites. Learn more about the project here.

Taking Care of Brooklyn: Stories of Sickness and Health

Taking Care of Brooklyn, opening at CBH on Pierrepont Street is an exhibition about public health and understandings of disease, and also so much more. It reveals the unique ways that residents experienced and understood health and disease in the dense, diverse, growing, and ever-changing place that is Brooklyn. Visitors will leave CBH with an expanded understanding of the meaning of “sickness” and “health,” both in the past and today. Read more about Taking Care of Brooklyn.
