Location: The City Reliquary (370 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn)
Price: $5 admission
In the middle of a busy Williamsburg intersection sits Ascenzi Square. This wedge of green space, often passed by in the daily chaos of the city, is a living tribute to Ascenzi brothers. These four sons of Williamsburg fought in World War I. Only two came home. The City Reliquary will chronicle the Ascenzi family and Ascenzi Square through photographs and personal artifacts of the Ascenzi family loaned by Marion Ascenzi Duckworth Smith, daughter to one of the surviving Ascenzi brothers, Charles. In illustrating the history of the memorial and the family it honors, the exhibit aims to illuminate an obscure part of Williamsburg history.
