Secret Brooklyn: An Unusual Guide
By: Michelle Young & Augustin Pasquet, Untapped Cities
Every borough has its secrets, and Brooklyn boasts some of the most unusual of them all. Untapped Cities’ Michelle Young and Augustin Pasquet have gathered these mysterious locals and legendary spaces into Secret Brooklyn: An Unusual Guide to shed light on these hidden histories. On this talk by the authors at the Lott House, you’ll discover secret museums, learn how to go on an urban safari for wild parrots, discover a performance of robots in a church, find out how to touch the oldest subway tunnel in the world and the world’s smallest Torah. The book features over 125 locations in Brooklyn, ranging from the secret, to historically fascinating, to the modern-day marvels, including the dramatic Newtown Creek Digester Eggs. There are also many locations in South Brooklyn, including the Lott House, to discover in this book.
