From Industry to Luxury: A Walk through Greenpoint’s Industrial Legacy

Janes Walk

Led By Ward Dennis and Matthew Kuhnert, North Brooklyn Neighbors AND Matthew Kuhnert

For over 150 years, North Brooklyn was a powerhouse of manufacturing. Today many of Greenpoint’s former industrial sites have given way to luxury towers. Building on North Brooklyn Neighbors’ environmental justice program documenting this industrial legacy, we will tour surviving artifacts of Greenpoint’s industrial past, see how it has been transformed in this century, and consider the environmental issues that lie beneath.
