Panel Discussion: Invention of Brownstone Brooklyn

Park Slope residents are all too familiar with the tension between those who view the neighborhood as an ideal urban oasis and those who view it as a "yuppie disaster". The issue will literally take center stage next Tuesday, March 15th at the Museum of the City of New York at a discussion called The Invention of Brownstone Brooklyn.

Moderated by author Suleiman Osman, a panel featuring Eric Demby, co-founder of Brooklyn Flea; D. Kenneth Patton, former divisional dean of the NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate; Amy Sohn, author of Prospect Park West (Simon & Schuster, 2009); and Michelle de la Uz, executive director of the Fifth Avenue Committee will explore "the racial and economic fault lines in the pro-urban ideal and the contested meaning of Brooklyn."

Interested? Reservations are required and the cost is $12 for non-members of the Museum. However, mention ALL ABOUT FIFTH while reserving tickets and you'll save $6!
