The Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse benefits the BHA

The neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights is one of the gems of New York City, and credit for that belongs in large part to the Brooklyn Heights Association.  The BHA is a leader among neighborhood associations and a strong voice for both innovation and preservation.

A history of activism. A focus on the future.

In a pioneering feat of urban preservation, Brooklyn Heights was designated the first Historic District in the city in 1965, after years of lobbying by the BHA. The BHA’s vision continues to shape the daily lives of Brooklyn Heights residents and visitors alike, as we advocate for more and better public spaces, schools, and libraries in our neighborhood and beyond.

Today, as the community seeks forward-looking, sustainable alternatives for the reconstruction of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, the Brooklyn Heights Association’s powerful advocacy is critical.
