The Heart of Brooklyn is chock-full of resources for the die-hard Brooklynite or for the person who wants to get the most out of their visit to our great Borough.

The handiest thing about this website is their color-coded Calendar of Events which you can view by Week, Month, or Agenda.

If, like me, you love the tangible version of everything, I suggest that you pick up their pull-out paper calendar. You can often find it where you find the local newspaper dispensers. That's how I discovered Fleece Fest at the Prospect Park Zoo, and BPL's lecture by famous children's book historian Leonard Marcus about Margaret Wise Brown (of Goodnight Moon fame) on her 100th birthday.

Also, this Saturday at 1:00, BPL is hosting a musical version of Harry the Dirty Dog, one of my favorite children's books.

HOB is a cultural partnership that links together the following extraordinary institutions:

  • Brooklyn Botanic Garden
  • Brooklyn Children's Museum
  • Brooklyn Museum
  • Brooklyn Public Library
  • Prospect Park
  • Prospect Park Zoo
