It's hard to image Carroll Gardens without Barbara Brookhart. For more than 31years, she has helped shape this community through her civic involvement and tireless volunteering. She is one of the founding members of the Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association, a long-time volunteer with Friends Of Carroll Park, served on the Brooklyn Bridge Park Community Advisory Council as an advocate for the park and was a member of Community Board 6 for twelve years. She is also a chronicler of Carroll Gardens history and fellow blogger.
For the last twelve years, she has been the executive director for the Bryant Park Corporation / 34th Street Partnership / Chelsea Improvement Company.
Barbara recently retired and will be moving to Arizona in the next few weeks, leaving behind Carroll Gardens. To give her the send-off she deserves, many of her neighborhood friends and fellow activists gathered last week to bid her a fond farewell.
We will all miss you, Barbara. Thanks for all you have done for the neighborhood and for this city. We will miss you very much.
