Summary

Atlantic Avenue has been one of Brooklyn's most dynamic commercial thoroughfares for over 150 years. Mack Truck, Benjamin Moore Paints, Corning Glass Works, and Ex-Lax all got their starts on Atlantic Avenue. This diverse retail and dining destination connects the historic neighborhoods of Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, and Cobble Hill. Join Brooklyn native Joe Svehlak on a walk to discuss Atlantic Avenue's architecture, social and commercial history, and recent development. The variety of commercial, religious, civic, and residential architecture, combining the old and the new, is a testament to the vitality of Atlantic Avenue. In addition to the old and new Arabic shopping centers, there are many specialty shops and a wide selection of dining establishments. On our walk we will also view a former brewery, several religious sites, and a mural depicting Atlantic Avenue's history and significance. All this as a prelude to New York's largest street fair, the Atlantic Antic on Sept 29th.
