Remembering the 70s and 80s: A Bygone Brooklyn

November 28, 2018 6:30 pm $10 Brooklyn Historical Society

The images captured in photographer Larry Racioppo’s new book, Brooklyn Before: Photographs, 1971-1983, tell the story of a gritty borough all but lost today. Racioppo is joined by two who remember: novelist and New York Daily News columnist Denis Hamill and journalist Tom Robbins of the Village Voice and New York Daily News. Julia Van Haaften, founding curator of the New York Public Library’s photography collection, joins this conversation about a lost Brooklyn and the art of street photography.
