Boathouse

leave a comment »

The Boathouse in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park was originally built in 1876. In 1905, it was replaced by the current building that stands in its place. Throughout the 20th Century, the Boathouse grew in popularity. Public adoration for the landmark was tested in 1960, when New York City planned to demolish the building. The community protested and was able to sway the City’s decision.

In 1968, New York City granted the Boathouse a landmark status.
