Park Slope's Best Profiled in New Book

Brooklyn Historical Society adds to neighborhood guide series



    Park Slope's Best Profiled in New Book
    The Brooklyn Historical Society published a guide to notable Park Slope architecture.

    Do you rub shoulders with the Gold Coast of Brooklyn's elite?

    The Brooklyn Historical Society would like to tell you how - architecturally speaking, at least.

    "Park Slope Neighborhood & Architectural History Guide" is the latest of the neighborhood guides series published by the biggest borough's historical group.

    The Park Slope edition is authored by Francis Morrone, an architecture critic who's written several books about New York , including "An Architectural Guidebook to Brooklyn."

    The BHS neighborhood guides are more like beefy pamphlets; the new one is 57 pages. Neighborhoods profiled in previous editions include Red Hook, Brooklyn Heights , Vinegar Hill and Greenpoint. They're all available in the historical society's online store.

    The Brooklyn Historical Society also offers online free architectural and literary maps of Park Slope and Brooklyn Heights.

    On Thursday, Morrone will talk about the new book during a lecture at the Old Stone House in Park Slope.
