Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.


20 January - 31 December
Organized by: Brooklyn Historical Society
Venue: BHS DUMBO, Empire Stores
55 Water Street

Waterfront is an exhibition and multimedia experience for all ages that brings to life the vibrant history of Brooklyn’s coastline through stories of workers, artists, industries, activists, families, neighborhoods, and ecosystems. Waterfront traces a personal, local history of the borough’s waterfront while also revealing the coastline's global significance. The exhibition engages with important debates about the shoreline’s future by taking on the waterfront’s most pressing contemporary topics including sea level rise and gentrification.


Waterfront is on view at BHS’s second location in Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Empire Stores.
