100 Clark Street: A Case Study

May 8, 6:30 PM | Brooklyn Historical Society

Join the Brooklyn Historical Society for a behind-the-scenes discussion with Margaret Streicker Porres, owner of the long-abandoned mansion at 100 Clark Street, and architect Tom van den Bout, to hear how they are saving this landmarked, 150-year old building from certain demolishment. Notable preservation activist and Executive Director of Historic Districts Council Simeon Bankoff will lead the discussion and explore their long-winded path to restore what was once a stunning building just from a small selection of archival photos, unveil the challenges they faced along the way, and examine what made their efforts successful against all odds.

Tickets are $5 for BHS and BHA members! Non-member price is $10.
