The shrinking Macy’s on Fulton Street was once home to an icon of Brooklyn’s Gilded Age prosperity: the Abraham & Straus department store. Author Michael Lisicky’s latest book brings this emporium’s history to life, from its 1865 founding through its postwar demise. Revel in historical trivia about secret jail cells and cheesecake contests, and hear how the company impacted its home borough with support for the Prospect Park Children’s Zoo, translation services for immigrant customers and more.

Offered in connection with a new exhibition about the history of business in Brooklyn at BHS Pierrepont.
