Tomorrow night, the Museum of the City of New York is hosting a panel discussion about race and gentrification in Brownstone Brooklyn, and they have graciously extended their members discount to all Inhabitat readers! Moderated by Suleiman Osman, the author of The Invention of Brownstone Brooklyn, the panel will discuss “the racial and economic fault lines in the pro-urban ideal and the contested meaning of Brooklyn.”
The panel consists of three representatives from Brooklyn organizations: Eric Demby, co-founder of the Brooklyn Flea; D. Kenneth Patton, former divisional dean of the NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate; and Michelle de la Uz, executive director of the Fifth Avenue Committee.
The event costs $12 for non-member, $8 for students and seniors, and $6 for members. MCNY has extended their members’ discount to Inhabitat readers, so you can reserve a ticket for just six bucks if you mention Inhabitat. You can reserve a ticket online or by calling 917-492-3395.
