Park Slope UMP begins

For its eighth year UMP is partnering with Park Slope Collegiate to explore the history and issues facing the borough of Brooklyn.  This year the emphasis is on students learning how to gather and synthesize primary source historical research to inform them on how different neighborhoods develop.  So far the students have examined fire insurance maps of the Park Slope neighborhood and are currently decoding historical census records.

Stay tuned for more information, as students begin to examine the course of the area today, including discussing the impact of the new Barclay’s stadium!
