Each week, we share an interesting or curious image from the BHS Archives on the
BHS Blog.

POTW Willow StreetPhoto of the Week:
Willow Street
The photo of the week depicts 79 Willow Street, which is located on the southeast corner of Pineapple Street in the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, around 1922. The house depicted here was torn down only a few years after the picture was taken, and by 1927, the large apartment building that still stands on that corner today had taken its place.

What does this building hold today? Find out on the
BHS Blog...
