Discover Brooklyn’s History

Are you in or near the NYC area?  If so, why not visit some of the historical sites mentioned in A WISH AFTER MIDNIGHT?  If you’re an educator planning a class trip, please contact the site in advance.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Be sure to try out the whispering bench!

Weeksville Heritage Center

Learn about this vibrant 19th-century community.

Plymouth Church ~ “Central Depot” of the Underground Railroad

See where Rev. Henry Ward Beecher held “mock” auctions.

There’s lots to be learned at the Brooklyn Historical Society and the New York Historical Society.  The African Burial Ground Museum also gives free tours of lower Manhattan and the monument dedicated to more than 400 enslaved Africans.
