The Domino Effect: A Walking Tour of Williamsburg

Thursday, August 15, 2013 6:00pm (tour will take approximately 2 hours)

Click here to view pictures from the July 11th tour! 


HDC held a complementary tour on July 11th  as a follow-up to HDC’s screening of The Domino Effect. It was so well received  that we have decided to do another! If you were unable to attend the first we hope can join us on August 15th!

The Domino Effect is a feature length documentary that explores the process of real estate development in New York City and examines its impact in Williamsburg and Greenpoint, Brooklyn. In the last decade, these neighborhoods have been transformed by gentrification and development enabled by controversial rezonings. For this walking tour, the film’s writer and researcher Brian Paul will lead attendees on a walk looking at the changing face of Williamsburg. From the new waterfront towers to the adaptive reuse of the Wythe Hotel (developed by Two Trees, Domino Sugar Factory’s new owner), participants will learn about how zoning and preservation has affected this rapidly-changing area.
