a radiant “dazzle camouflage” by New York Citybased artist Tauba Auerbach. Seasoned sailors and landlubbers alike are welcome to board the eccentric vessel from Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 on Saturday and Sunday. The floating sculpture, dubbed “Flow Separation,” will leave Brooklyn for Hudson River Park’s Pier 25 at 3 p.m. on Sunday after its final two trips. British painter Norman Wilkinson created the “dazzle camouflage” design during World War I to deter U-boats. The bizarre design made it difficult for Germans using attack periscopes to detect the exact distance, direction and speed of their targets. When America eventually joined the war effort, U.S. boats were painted in a similar fashion at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. “[Flow Separation] has really captured people’s imaginations,” Public Art Fund adjunct curator Emma Enderby told the Brooklyn Eagle. “It’s an incredible work of art. Everything is meticulously hand painted.”

“One of the aspects of the original dazzle technique that Auerbach liked, was it was a camouflage, but it wasn’t hiding,” she added. “It was more about confusing and outsmarting than it was about hiding. She wanted to use the original colors of the fireboat to pay homage to its history.” Although the John J. Harvey was decommissioned in the 1990s, the boat was brought back into service during 9/11, when the vessel pumped water for 80 hours and rescued people from the base of the World Trade Center. Each trip varies slightly, but passengers will be taken along the Brooklyn waterfront, around the Statue of Liberty and near Lower Manhattan. Visitors will also be treated to a water gun show. “Sometimes I think we forget that we’re completely surrounded by water,” Enderby said. “The history of the Hudson River and the East River, they’re important to making New York what New York is.

We did this the old-fashioned way!” Joining Treyger in his effort was fellow Councilmember Chaim Deutsch, of the 48th District, which includes significant portions of the Riegelmann Boardwalk. “They mud wrestle all the time over whose district has more of the boardwalk,” Johnson quipped. “At the end of the day,” said Deutsch, “no matter what ethnic background you’re from, or what culture you represent, when it comes to issues, we’re all the same, and they’re all important to us.” “The boardwalk is a big part of what brought the fairly new city of New York together,” Treyger said later. “Before it came into being, much of this land was private, and many people weren’t allowed access,

or had to pay. Once the boardwalk was opened, however, people from all walks of life, all races and religions, came together here. And their differences really weren’t as important in this place.” With its status as NYC’s 11th scenic landmark established, the Riegelmann Boardwalk will require additional layers of oversight before significant alterations can take place. Moreover, the city landmark law requires there to be a boardwalk between Ocean Parkway and West 37th Street in perpetuity. According to Brooklyn Parks Commissioner Marty Maher, the Reigelmann Boardwalk is 2.4 miles long, comprised of 1.3 million boards, which are held in place by 18 million nails and screws. “I had some extra time on my hands,” Maher said with a laugh, “so I counted each one.” Henceforth, each one of them is now protected by NYC law.

Taking inspiration from the numerous block parties that enliven our neighborhood in the summer, the exhibition takes a more critical look at the importance of these community gatherings. Not just a simple get together, block parties strengthen community ties and often function as a town hall to discuss larger issues affecting the neighborhood including violence, immigration, sexuality and race.

And the best place to start is with the sampler of German Wurst Sausages served with gherkins, caramelized pearl onions and sauerkraut. Or you might just want to enjoy a giant German pretzel served with Bavarian mustard and dips. And on

Catholic Media Groups Partner to Cover World Meeting of Families in Ireland By Francesca Norsen Tate INBrooklyn

Currents News and Crux, a Catholic news website, are partnering to provide in-depth coverage of the World Meeting of Families in Dublin, Ireland next week. Held triennially, the celebration hosts hundreds of thousands of people and is the world’s largest Catholic gathering of families. The meeting, from August 21-26, will feature an open-air Mass with Pope Francis, as well as workshops and presentations. It comes in the wake of a vote to reform abortion laws and takes place nearly a decade after Ireland’s clerical sex abuse scandal first broke. Once deemed the most “Catholic country,” Ireland is witnessing its church advocating a new chapter and mission for the family in the context of the 21st century. During the weeklong event, Currents News and Crux will explore theology, doctrine, liturgy, practices and traditions of Catholicism in the context of the life of modern-day Catholics, giving full voice to disagreements and challenges facing the church and believers. The Diocese of Brooklyn’s DeSales Media produces Currents News. Currents’ Liz Faublas will anchor coverage from New York,

while correspondents Michelle Powers and Tim Harfmann will report from Ireland. Members of Crux’s editorial team will offer analysis and expertise. Concurrently, Currents News’ reports will appear on Crux’s website. Television coverage will take place from Monday, Aug. 20 to Friday, Aug. 24 on NET-TV’s Currents News at 7:30 p.m. EDT.

Extended live coverage will begin with Pope Francis’s arrival in Dublin on Saturday, Aug. 25 at 5:30 a.m. EDT, and then again on Sunday, Aug. 26 at 4:15 a.m. Currents News airs on NETTV in the New York City area on Spectrum, channel 97; Optimum, channel 30; and Verizon Fios, channel 48.

Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church and Pastor Klaus Dieter Gress welcomed the Vivida Banda Youth Choir from Germany last week as part of the ensemble’s first U.S. tour. Vivida Banda, whose youths and parents describe themselves as a big intergenerational family, sings in several languages. They opened their full-length, twohour concert on the outdoor steps of the church on Henry Street with a spiritual, “Jesus in the Morning.” The ensemble then moved into the sanctuary, reprising this opening hymn and offering a wide repertoire of English-language pieces, including “What a Wonderful World” (made famous by Louis Armstrong), “You Raise Me Up” and “The Storm Is Passing Over,” as well as German and Swedish songs. They crunched a demanding tour into about three days, also singing at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. The youths are also part of the Singschule of the Chöre Peterskirche Weinheim, where they begin their musical training as early as toddlers. They describe the Singschule as an intergenerational family that offers several different types of choir experiences, from toddler and youth choirs to elder choir and the Adult Kantorei in between. They also have bands and a Gospel choir. The choir’s founder/choral director is Anne Christine Langenbach. Her husband Simon is piano accompanist. Their son Jakob plays trumpet. The youths’ biggest surprise about New York City: “the food,” Miriam, a choir member, told INBrooklyn. “I think there are a lot of small things standing out, for example, how different the food is and how everyone is so nice. But I think what really stood out to me was when we went to Times Square yesterday in the evening—because it is way bigger than everything I have ever seen in my life. The [food] portions are bigger and there are so many more items. You know, you don’t just order a burger, you order a burger and then you order four different toppings for that.” Her choirmate Isabelle quickly found a corpus metaphor for New York City: “There are just so many pieces, so many different stories coming together as whole, and if you walk down the streets you see so many different situations of life coming together, it’s just beautiful.”

Come See Recently Sold Homes in Manhattan Beach By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Go big or go home. That's the unofficial motto of developers in Manhattan Beach. Whenever we're hit with a sudden bout of nostalgia for Miami, where we lived many years ago, we head to Manhattan Beach for a stroll. Many big, beautiful houses on this Brooklyn peninsula remind us of South Florida mansions. Other homes, though not evocative of Miami, are also big, beautiful and interesting to look at. Even on the steamiest summer day, it's great fun to walk around Manhattan Beach. Atlantic Ocean breezes will keep you from overheating and keeling over. The other day, we went and tracked down some lovely houses — and a development site — that changed hands recently. We also snapped photos of Manhattan Beach's most eye-catching houses. See related story.

This is a glimpse of 321 Hampton Ave.

Head to Manhattan Beach for a Staycation Day By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Staycations are good for the soul. Sometimes you really need a quick getaway from your life, but spare cash for an airplane ticket and a hotel room is in short supply. Any summer staycation worthy of the name calls for at least one day at the beach. Coney Island is dreamy, of course, an ideal staycation getaway for New York City residents. We're obsessively devoted to its famous landmarks like the Wonder Wheel and the Parachute Jump. And a walk down its cherished Boardwalk will take you to Brighton Beach, where you can eat borscht at beachfront Russian

cafes. But today we're going to extol the virtues of Brooklyn's other point of access to the Atlantic Ocean — Manhattan Beach. That's the name of both an excellent public beach and the surrounding peninsular neighborhood. A sign posted on Oriental Boulevard, which runs through the middle of the neighborhood, refers to Manhattan Beach as “Brooklyn by the Sea.� We like the sound of that. Manhattan Beach Park is a 40-acre recreation area that opened in 1955. The city created it to help alleviate crowded conditions on Coney Island's beach. The parkland in Manhattan Beach had belonged to the federal government, which had acquired it during World War II for use as the Coast Guard and Maritime Training Station. The beach is beautiful. When we went for a visit on a prime beach-going day — a hot, sunny August Sunday — we found a mellow, happy scene.

This Sale Broke the $3 Million Threshold

A developer named Corbin Group Inc. sold a newly built stucco house at 228 Corbin Place in March for $3.3 million, city Finance Department records indicate. In 2016, Corbin Group Inc., with Salvatore Calcagno as its authorized signatory, had bought the property for $1.6 million from Corbin Corp. with Munzer Elayyan as president, Finance Department records show. Brodmore LLC with Vadeem Brodsky as member and Corbin Corp. had jointly purchased the property for $1.2 million in 2007. It was vacant residential land at that time, the deed indicates. In 2016, Brodmore LLC transferred its one-third stake in 228 Corbin Place to Corbin Corp. The public record doesn't show how much money, if any, changed hands in this transaction. The couple who sold the site to Brodmore LLC and Corbin Corp. had inherited it in 1994, Finance Department records show. The house is near the Atlantic Ocean shoreline.

By the Sea, by the Sea, by the Beautiful Sea

* According to Finance Department records, on another block that dead-ends in a scenic way at the Atlantic Ocean, a beautiful house at 221 Coleridge St. sold for $2.5 million in April 2017.

Developers go big in Manhattan Beach. For example, this Hampton Avenue house was enlarged in the 1990s.

This handsome house is the recently sold 228 Corbin Place.

E State

Come See Recently Sold Homes in Manhattan Beach — Continued frompage 18INB — City Buildings Department filings suggest the sellers had renovated the house after their $1.26 million purchase of it in February 2016. That price also comes from Finance Department records, of course. • On the next street over, on a block that also ends at the Atlantic Ocean, a handsome brick house at 267 Dover St. sold for $2.45 million in May 2017, Finance Department records indicate. This home was constructed in the late 1990s. The sellers had paid $2.2 million for it in 2015, Finance Department records show. Before that, 267 Dover St. had been sold for $990,000 in 2004. • On the next street, on yet another block with a scenic seaside dead-end, an LLC purchased a house that has fallen into disrepair and has an enormous yard for $2.2 million, Finance Department records indicate. The transaction was an estate sale. It closed in May. The address of the house is 228 Exeter St. In June, the purchaser filed a Buildings Department application for a demolition permit.

My City by the Bay

Hark! It's 137 Hastings St., which sold for slightly more than $3 INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan million.

• On a block that's close to Sheepshead Bay — in this instance we mean the body of water, not the neighborhood — a house at 137 Hastings St. sold for $3.06 million in March, Finance Department records indicate. The five-bedroom, 4,500-square-foot house has a garage, two terraces and a large back yard with a deck, a posting by listing broker Douglas Elliman says. The seller had bought the property for $1.73 million in 2006, Finance Department records show. • A house on the corner of Oriental Boulevard, which runs through the center of Manhattan Beach, sold in May for $2,565,990, Finance Department records show. The address is 195 Kensington St. Buildings Department filings suggest the seller had enlarged the house after buying it in 2014. According to Finance Department records, that purchase had been made for $1.2 million.

Head to Manhattan Beach for a Staycation Day — Continued from page 18INB — There were lots of people ensconced on the sand beneath beach umbrellas, and lots more splashing in the refreshing waves. But it wasn't crowded in a claustrophobia-inducing way.

Nostalgia for Miami Beach

You're never, ever going to think any beach at the north end of the Eastern Seaboard resembles Miami Beach. It's located in a tropical zone, so the sea is a pretty color and palm trees abound. Its Art Deco-style hotels and homes will knock your socks off. But. Keep this in mind the next time you're hit with a wave of nostalgia for Miami Beach. You can find echoes of it on the streets of Manhattan Beach. Numerous houses in the neighborhood have a Miami Moderne look. They're brightly painted stucco that's beautiful in hot sunlight, have sleek lines and are situated just a block or two from the ocean. Their presence makes a stroll through the neighborhood an entertaining part of a staycation day. One of our favorite Manhattan Beach houses can be found at 293 Amherst St., right on the ocean. It's got a white stucco and glass-brick facade and is designed with lots of curving

walls. It reminds us of the glamorous architecture that was showcased on “Miami Vice,” the iconic 1980s TV series. Another great Miami Beach-style house is at 295 Corbin Place, which also stands beside the ocean — as does 293 Coleridge St.

Which Way to the Spanish Hacienda?

Also, check out Miami Beach-style 305 Hampton Ave., which is a golden-hued house a block away from the shore of Sheepshead Bay. Just down the street, 321 Hampton Ave. looks like a Spanish hacienda in a very Miami Beach kind of way. There are also eye-catching houses in other architectural styles. Some are Tudor-style designs. Some are big and elaborate. We love those, too. Some of the beautiful houses near the shoreline were damaged by Superstorm Sandy and haven't yet been repaired. We can imagine the anguish these homes' owners have been through, and we're saddened by it. When your day is done, you can walk across a picturesque, blue-painted footbridge that connects Manhattan Beach to the neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay. You'll wind up on Emmons Avenue, where there are numerous charming restaurants and cafes. Some have outside seating.

Theatre for Kids and Families Opens in Park Slope By John Alexander INBROOKLYN

Play Nice Theatre has begun its season of lighthearted musicals with positive, life-affirming messages about cooperation and kindness. And they’re looking for their July/August cast, musicians, and backstage helpers. Relocated from Manhattan, this all-volunteer company’s rehearsals and meetings reflect their mission and message by encouraging its mixed-generation cast and crew (ages 6 to 106) to interact socially and share stories of their own lives on and off stage. In a welcoming atmosphere, the experienced and new Play Nice actors and crew are encouraged to come early and linger after assigned rehearsal slots in order to get to know each other, help each other memorize their lines, do school homework and play games. Some may choose to help with scenery painting or prop-making. All ticket sales from main stage shows ($10 admission) is donated to local charities, a prime motivation for many participants who find it rewarding to help raise money for those less fortunate through donating their time and talent. According to theatre founder Rob Lester, the cast and crew are like a second family. “Working on a show with

friendly people is fun and satisfying,” he says. The Brooklyn Eagle stopped by the new location at 89 Fourth Avenue, five blocks from Barclays Center, where the two-act musical “The Three Little Pigs Buy a Brownstone in Brooklyn” is running on weekends (2 p.m. Saturdays, 3:30 p.m. Sundays, through July 1). The Eagle is mentioned prominently in the Brooklyn-centric script in Scene 6 and the newspaper is used as a prop as well. The show’s target audience is ages six and up, with plenty of humor adults will appreciate. “Two six-year-olds are among the actors, with the oldest member more than ten times their age, and the family idea is reflected literally: the cast includes two brothers who play two of the pigs; a mother and her son have a scene together as an older pig

and hedgehog; two actors are cousins,” we’re informed. Original lyrics are set to public domain melodies including old folk songs and classic children’s tunes. The show, which emphasizes “being a good neighbor,” plus patience, perseverance, and pig puns runs through July 1, will be followed by show after show, starting with the summer musical about kids and counselors at an unusual summer camp, titled “Not a Happy Camper.” The theatre welcomes audition appointments, visits, donations of costumes and supplies, and all inquiries throughout the year. Acting classes, puppet shows, concerts, one-day free workshops, variety shows, and special family events are planned and a fundraising concert on July 20. For more details, show times, tickets, and contact information, go to www.PlayNicePeople. com.

NEED TO KNOW • An average mattress contains anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million dust mites.

NEIGHBORHOOD NEWSBEAT Hidden Bakery Becomes Pastry Destination in DUMBO

DUMBO — In the lobby of 68 Jay St. in DUMBO is Burrow, a Japanese bakery whose cakes and cookies baffle well-established pastry chefs and which attracts celebrity customers with little publicity. Ayako Kurokawa and her team of three other Japanese female bakers operate the bakery, according to Bon Appétit. Burrow’s schedule of Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., makes it difficult for some people to visit, and the bakery has no identifying signs on its door or win-

dow. Yet, it has managed to rack up 78,000 Instagram followers from around the world, Bon Appétit said. Among Kurokawa’s creations are tomato and Gruyere quiches, smoked salmon cakes, carrot cake made with orange juice, strawberry cake and upside-down pineapple cake. Kurokawa grew up in Japan, came to New York in 2000 and held a variety of jobs before becoming a pastry chef. She doesn’t speak much about herself, preferring to let her pastries do the talking.

Times Columnist Praises Parks Along Brooklyn-Queens Waterfront WATERFRONT — The three new or expanded parks along the Brooklyn-Queens waterfront are good news, says New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman. He focuses on Brooklyn Bridge Park, whose central lawn he calls “a mini-version of Sheep Meadow;” the privately built Domino Park in Williamsburg; and Hunters Point South Park in Long Island City, Queens, which has 11 acres of playground and promenades. It’s hard to forget, Kimmelman says, that barely more than a decade ago, Brooklyn Bridge Park was “a grimy sprawl of parking lots and warehouses on decrepit piers” and the Hunters Point site was “a ruin of shuttered factories along the shore.” At the Domino site, the Domino Sugar Refinery was still operating, although in a greatly diminished capacity, as late as 2004. Kimmelman quotes a phrase from Canadian planner and architect Ken Greenberg, “the melting of the industrial glacier,” to describe the transformation of the waterfront since the departure of industry in the late 20th century. While Kimmelman acknowledges that many jobs have been lost, he reiterates that these three parks, all developed during the Bloomberg era, are meeting an expanded population’s need for more open space.

Higher Prices for Metered Parking Coming to Brooklyn Next Month BOROUGHWIDE — Higher rates for metered parking are coming to New York this fall, with new costs taking effect in Brooklyn starting Sept. 4. Rollouts will start in Brooklyn, spreading into Manhattan in October. Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island will also face higher prices later this year. These price hikes are being carried out in hopes that they will ease congestion in the

city’s busiest areas, according to Crain’s. Downtown Brooklyn will see the highest price hike in the borough, jumping from $1.00 to $2.00 per hour. Other affected areas in Brooklyn, such as Greenpoint and Williamsburg, will see an increase from $1.00 to $1.50. This will be the first increase in metered parking costs since 2013, according to the Department Of Transportation. 

Last Thursday, the temperature inside the busy Union Square station reached 104 degrees, nearly 20 degrees warmer than the high in Central Park, according to CityLab. That day, the Regional Plan Association measured temperatures at 16 of the system’s busiest stations as well as several others, and 12 out of the 16 reached 90 degrees or more. Few of the system’s stations are equipped with air conditioning, although this is common in newer city subway systems. AP Photo/Mary Altaffer

Kate McKinnon Takes A Tour of Haunted Brooklyn

BOROUGHWIDE — It’s been two years since Kate McKinnon appeared in the female-fronted “Ghostbusters” (2016), but it seems the actress and comedian still has ghosts on the brain. McKinnon was spotted in Brooklyn last week on the Madame Morbid Tour, the trolley bus that takes its passengers on a jaunt around Brooklyn’s spook-iest locales, from alleged Mafia dumping sites

to Revolutionary Warera burial grounds. She didn’t waste the opportunity to show off her “Ghostbuster” education. Page Six reports that McKinnon participated in the tour’s trivia game, shouting out answers to questions like the content of “the Ghostbuster ruling,” which maintains that if a house is considered haunted, potential homebuyers have the right to know.

Can-Collecting Brooklyn Bag Lady Is Really a Multimillionaire PROSPECT HEIGHTS — An eccentric Brooklyn woman who drives a rundown graffiti-covered car, collects cans and pushes a laundry cart full of plastic bags is worth more than $8 million. Lisa Fiekowski’s trash-filled 1993 Toyota Camry has been a source of complaints in Prospect Heights for years, according to the New York Post. However, Fiekowski (whom Business Insider says is also known as Lisa Silversmith) has an MBA from the University of Chicago and owns a $1 million co-op near Prospect Park as well as three Harlem properties on tree-lined blocks. “Like Fiekowski’s sloppy jalopy, her uninhabitable investment properties are filled with junk,” the Post reported. After Fiekowski, the daughter of two high-powered Washington, D.C. economists, came to New York in 1979, she first worked as a marketing analyst at AT&T and then, briefly, as a stockbroker. A decade ago, however, she took up collecting cans, which brings her $20 to $30 a day, as a hobby. “It keeps me active. I talk to people in the neighborhood,” she told the Post. Her upscale family doesn’t approve of her lifestyle – her husband, whom the Post did not name, earns a yearly salary of $180,000 working for the city, and her mother, who negotiated trade deals worldwide, knew Condoleezza Rice personally.

Brooklyn Has Changed What it Means To Be Neighborhood Restaurant

FORT GREENE — Brooklyn has changed the concept of the neighborhood restaurant, according to Bloomberg News. The site says the transformation results from the rise of a new class of consumers in the areas near Downtown Brooklyn who have high incomes and want something different than what they’ve experienced before. “Thanks to diners’ increasingly sophisticated palates and acceptance of experimental cooking, neighborhood restaurants — broadly taken to be reliable joints with unadventurous menus — are raising their game to previously unconsidered heights,” said Bloomberg reporters Kate Krader and James Tarmy. They give the example of Metta at 197 Adelphi St. in Fort Greene, where diners can watch chef Norberto Piattoni cook dinner over fire and which serves dishes like crispy lamb neck and redfish served over preserved tomatoes. “We wanted to offer food that is interesting and ambitious but also affordable,” Peter Dowling, a partner in the restaurant, told Bloomberg. Some of the new-style restaurants don’t even offer hamburgers, and many that still do offer them with a new twist, such as the one served with pimento cheese at Fairfax in Manhattan’s West Village. The article defines a neighborhood restaurant as one “that is not a destination beyond the neighborhood’s borders.”

Protests Erupt in Front of Nail Salon After Brawl Goes Viral

EAST FLATBUSH — Protestors gathered in front of an East Flatbush nail salon last Tuesday after a video of salon employees assaulting black customers went viral. After the clients in question refused to pay for a faulty eyebrow wax, multiple salon employees attacked them with first acetone nail polish remover and then the wooden handle of a broomstick, Gothamist reported. One employee, 32-yearold HuiYue Zheng, was charged with misdemeanor assault, and the client who had refused to pay, 21-year-old Christina Thomas, was also arrested after fighting back. Both women were released on their own recognizance. Diana C. Richardson, the state assemblywoman who represents Flatbush, took to Facebook Live on Tuesday morning to denounce the actions of the salon employees as a “hate crime.” Later that day, dozens of demonstrators protesting the salon’s actions gathered in front of the storefront, which had been shuttered for the day. According to the Washington Post, the protestors claimed that the Asian-owned business had disrespected the primarily black neighborhood.“There is no respect for people in this neighborhood,” one East Flatbush resident told the Daily News. “Anytime a store doesn’t respect us, we’re going to shut it down.” Thursday, August 16, 2018 • Brooklyn Eagle • 5

Relive the Epic Battle of Brooklyn August Events Commemorate 1776 Revolutionary Turning Point By Mary Frost Brooklyn Eagle

Monday, Aug. 27 marks the anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn, the first major engagement of the Revolutionary War to take place after the U.S. declared its independence in 1776. Numerous events will be taking place in Brooklyn this month to commemorate the epic battle, including re-enactments, tours, a parade and more. On that night 242 years ago, the British began an advance toward the main American entrenchments on the Brooklyn Heights. Realizing the situation was desperate, American Gen. William Alexander, Lord Stirling, led a regiment of just 400 Maryland soldiers

against 2,000 British forces commanded by Gen. Charles Cornwallis at the Old Stone House. Historian John Gallagher, in “The Battle of Brooklyn, 1776,” wrote, “Into the rain of British fire the Marylanders charged … Though the ground became littered with dead and dying Maryland militia, Stirling formed them up again.” Six times Stirling charged. Although the Marylanders fought heroically, they suffered enormous losses — more than 250 of the regiment were killed. Stirling finally surrendered — not to the British, but to the German Hessian commander. Cornwallis later said that Gen. Lord Stirling “fought like a wolf.” Although the battle was a tactical loss, it was a strategic victory for the

Americans because, while the British eventually captured New York, they failed to capture the American Army under Gen. George Washington. Under cover of bad weather and a British command hesitant to pounce, Washington led a successful retreat from the Heights across the East River into Manhattan, there to fight another day. “Had the British mounted a determined attack on Brooklyn Heights they could have bagged the entire American Revolution,” Rodger Kennedy writes in a post for the New York Public Library. Or as one Brooklyn Heights wag put it, “If not for Lord Stirling, we might all be British subjects and forced to watch royal weddings on TV.” The fighting took place in Brooklyn

neighborhoods including today’s GreenWood Cemetery, Prospect Park, Fort Greene Park and Fulton Ferry Landing. The historic Old Stone House was the site of the largest battle. Many of the commemorative events will take place in these neighborhoods. Here are just a few:
