Building the Future in Brighton Beach

From YouTube user: BKIndependentTV

Like other coastal communities of Brooklyn, Brighton Beach was devastated by Sandy’s waters.

We visited the site with the project’s architect to find out why it came through so well and what others can learn for how to rebuild for the future.

36th Annual Brighton Jubilee: Brooklyn By The Sea

Pat Singer founded the Brighton Neighborhood Association in 1977 as a way to save her beloved Brighton Beach from the downward spiral of many Brooklyn neighborhoods during that time. Then a single mother, she went door to door to rally support and launched the first Brighton Jubilee. Now, 36 years later, it has become an annual tradition filled with great food, local vendors, committed sponsors, musical acts, kiddie activities, along with volunteers and members of the Brighton Neighborhood Association.
