Just received word this afternoon from the Brooklyn Historical Society:
"Brooklyn Historical Society is a museum, library and education center...[w]e are very interested in questions of preservation, however we are not an advocacy organization. Therefore, I am concerned about your petition and making sure that that you are connecting your effort with an organization that is truly in the business of advocating for preservation of buildings and historic structures. Perhaps you might speak with...the Municipal Arts Society."
We are redirecting our efforts. Thanks to everyone supporting this petition!
