Secret Brooklyn: An Unusual Guide // with Atlas Obscura Friday, May 3, 7-9 PM
Every borough has its secrets, and Brooklyn boasts some of the most unusual. Learn about these unique locations from Michelle Young and Augustin Pasquet of Untapped Cities, amongst one of the most surprising spots of them all - a ecological rooftop green oasis in an oil spill zone!
To celebrate the second edition of the book, Secret Brooklyn: An Unusual Guide by Michelle Young and Augustin Pasquet, releasing in May 2019, we'll gather in the shadows of the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant to learn more about the borough's mysterious locals and legendary spaces to shed light on these hidden histories.
With Michelle and Augustin as your guides, you'll discover secret museums, go on an urban safari for wild parrots, watch a performance of robots in a church, stand tall next to hobbit doors on an otherwise normal residential street, learn how to breathe fire, swallow swords, hammer a nail into your skull and charm a snake, touch the oldest subway tunnel in the world and the world’s smallest Torah. New locations in the second edition include a hidden tennis club, a house full of superheroes, remnants of a lost hotel and train station, and Kingsland Wildflowers at Broadway Stages itself!
Please RSVP here.
