This Saturday, June 11th, Open House New York’s Field Guide: North Brooklyn will open more than twenty sites across central Williamsburg and Greenpoint. From design studios to cultural spaces to working factories and fabrication shops, the line-up of participating sites represents the dynamic mix of uses made possible by the area’s finely grained urban fabric, the result of a series of successive waves of economic growth and decline, as well as shifting ideologies in urban planning.
On the morning of the event, we invite you to join us for the Field Guide Foreword, a panel discussion about the neighborhood and its future. Before spending the afternoon visiting sites, hear from experts about the area’s past, how a major rezoning in 2005 shifted development patterns, and what we might expect to see in the years to come. Panelists include:
Douglas Adams, Chief Operating Officer, Waterfront Alliance
Leah Archibald, Executive Director, Evergreen
Peter Zuspan, Principal, Bureau V
Gregory Wessner, Executive Director, Open House New York (moderator)
Admission to this panel is free to individuals registered for Field Guide: North Brooklyn, but space is limited and RSVP is required.
