A few highlights from Brooklyn Digger’s event yesterday at McGolrick Park. By far yours trulys favorite feature (aside from perhaps the “Mini Monitor”) were the smelling boxes.

  2. Kudos to the Brooklyn Diggers. This was an excellent event full of fascinating information about Greenpoint and life in the 19th century. I hope there will be more. BTW the horse manure smell box wasn’t nearly pungent enough!!

  4. What I would like to see is a cooperative event between the “Diggers” and the wonderful folks behind the Monitor Museum!

Tell me what you're thinking...
