Brooklyn Historical Society: Bite-Size History
Join BHS for lunch! Their lunchtimes series Bite-Size History begins May 22 with BHS historian Nalleli Guillen providing in-depth looks at intriguing objects in their collection. Nalleli looks at a different object every week, and every week brings a new guest. This Friday she and Project Archivist/Reference Associate Mary Mann explore the history behind the statue of an American Indian that stood outside a Brooklyn Heights cigar shop for many decades. Learn more over your Thursday dinner leftovers or a delicious snack on Friday at 12:30 pm!
