$10 tickets for non-members (purchase here)

Join Brooklyn Brainery and Brooklyn Historical Society for this special presentation on found objects and forgotten stories. Join historian, archivist and raconteur Benjamin Feldman as he shares the stories of found objects and long-forgotten New York scandals from the nineteenth and twentieth century. This talk will take you on a journey which began with a simple garage sale find from Chelsea, whereby a little change purse with gilt lettering, a piece of swag, unfolded into a tale of the struggle of a Ben Katchor-esque Lower East Side saloon operator trying to survive after Prohibition shut him down (almost….).

Your ticket includes one free water or Brooklyn Brewery beer.
