Bordering Canarsie, East Flatbush, Crown Heights, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and East New York, Brownsville has been and remains a working class neighborhood since its founding in 1880. We will see sights such as old Loew’s Pitkin Theater on Pitkin Avenue, Brownsville’s commercial artery and the Stone Avenue Branch of the Brooklyn Public LIbrary which opened in 1914 as the Brownsville Children’s Library, the world’s first public library devoted to children.
