Join us for a storytelling walk to talk about neighborhood, gentrification, and the meaning of place in Brooklyn and across New York. This tour of the sites in the Intersection | Prospect Heights guidebooks, led by artist Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani, will culminate with an opportunity to tell your own stories, in partnership with Brooklyn Public Library.

In the last decade, development pressure in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn has resulted in both the displacement of people and significant changes to the neighborhood’s built environment; similar forces are converging on other New York City communities.

Intersection | Prospect Heights presents a series of popup exhibitions, public conversations, creative walks, and “guidebooks” showing neighborhood places through the eyes of residents in the early 2000s. These neighbors first gave their tours to Gabrielle, when she asked: “Where is your Prospect Heights?” Exposing change through individual stories, we seek to foster conversations on development, displacement and sustainability in this critical moment for the city. 

There is no charge for the tour, but capacity is limited and RSVP is required. Click here for more information, and scroll to the bottom of the list of events.

Intersection | Prospect Heights is a public art and dialogue project that launched in 2015. It is an initiative of Buscada, the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council, and Brooklyn Public Library.
