In Focus

Welcome to Our New Website

Dec 9

The BHA’s new website features a fresh look and a deeper way to engage our members and the Brooklyn Heights community. You’ll find a constant flow of local news and events, an in-depth section to track the range of issues we’re involved with, and a more transparent look at who we are and the way we operate — from our board of governors to our committee structure. You can also follow an interactive timeline of the BHA’s accomplishments over the years (106 years and counting); access lists of a range of neighborhood resources, including local services, neighborhood schools and more; and, importantly, explore the ways in which you can connect with your community through volunteer opportunities. We hope that the more you learn about what we do to serve this community, the more you’ll be encouraged to become a member and support our work.  Speaking of support, we’ve integrated a database management system into the website to help us work with our membership more efficiently in several ways — from understanding your specific community interests to making it easier than ever to join and renew your membership online. Visit our Support section to see for yourself.

Finally, this new site has been designed to work beautifully on all your mobile devices. Now you can stay connected to your community wherever you go. And don’t forget to join our mailing list and follow us on social media to take advantage of all we have to offer. Welcome!
