After reopening to great fanfare on October 16, the recently renovated Brooklyn Historical Society in Downtown Brooklyn is making another splash. Today the institution announced that in honor of its 150th anniversary, it's launching two new family programs in November: Sing Back, Brooklyn with Lloyd H. Miller, a skit-, story- and song-filled session with the frontman of the Deedle Deedle Dees (on the frst Saturday of each month at 3pm; begins Sat Nov 2); and Handmade History, a hands-on art-making workshop that teaches kids about the city's history through crafts (on the second Saturday of the month; begins Sat Nov 9 at 3pm). Both are completely free. Happy birthday, BHS! We know lots of Brooklyn (and other!) families who'll be thrilled to learn you're back—and welcoming families into the fold.
Both programs take place at the Brooklyn Historical Society, 128 Pierrepont St at Clinton St, Brooklyn Heights (718-222-4111, brooklynhistory.org).
