Brooklyn
Originally known as Breuckelen, this independent city became a borough of New York City as a result of the creation of Greater New York in the consolidation of 1898. The Museum's extensive collection of images depicting Brooklyn show the Battle of Brooklyn, the evolution of Prospect Park, and the transition from vast farm lands into dense urban settlements, among other themes.
