Center for Brooklyn History Nearing Completion

July 12, 2023

Our renovation at the Center for Brooklyn History is nearly complete and soon to be open to the public! 
Leading up to the renovation, we worked closely with Brooklyn Public Library and CBH staff on an assessment report to identify challenges, opportunities, and short- and long-term strategies to transform the once private institution into one that could be utilized and enjoyed by the public. Our renovation includes the revitalization of the entry plaza with new furniture for public seating, centering the entry doors and making them accessible, enhancements to the entrance lobby including a welcome desk and display monitor, adding an accessible ramp to connect the new main entry to the historic landmarked interior entry, flexible lounge seating, custom wayfinding and a new retail area. Stay tuned for more information on the grand opening.
