Brooklyn Clubs – A (Mostly) Forgotten History

With Matt Postal

[Virtual tour] At the start of the 20th century, the number of private clubs in Brooklyn rivalled that of Manhattan. From Brooklyn Heights to Bay Ridge, architectural historian Matt Postal will present a Zoom talk on their history, including lost, former, and current examples. Highlights are likely to include the former Lincoln Club, a Queen Anne style gem, the Montauk Club, including its extraordinary terra-cotta frieze, and the Heights Casino, which boasts one the first indoor tennis courts in the nation.

Registration is now closed.
