Summary The Young scholars focused on: What makes a community? How has their community changed over time? What was it like to live and work along Brooklyn's industrial waterfront? Empire Stores, a complex of seven former warehouses near the Brooklyn Bridge. 53-83 Water Street, is an artifact from the then busy port city. -- This publication is the result of a six-month Young Scholars partnership between Brooklyn Historical Society and P.S. 307 [the Daniel Hale School]. The Young Scholars program is designed to introduce a core group of students to the dynamic process of historical research about their neighborhood and to share these students' interpretive work beyond the walls of their classroom.
