Building in Bushwick, BrooklynBushwick has seen major transformations from its days as a Dutch settlement to a 19th Century staunch German enclave, to a symbol of urban decay after the 1977 blackout and fires. Hear the story of one of New York City's oldest neighborhoods, as preservationist Joe Svehlak shows us remnants of Bushwick's glorious past and its current renaissance. View a former brewery, beer baron mansions, great civic buildings, churches and two World War One memorials by sculptor Pietro Montana. We'll also visit the Rheingold Gardens complex of apartments and townhouses, an award winning symbol of Bushwick's revitalization. Private developers are now transforming Bushwick into a trendy community of new housing, galleries, shops, and restaurants.Cost: $30 / $20 Members
