Life on Dean Street

1200dean

Mark Winston Griffith is one of our most active members in the community. One of his projects is “Brooklyn Deep“, a digital journalism project covering the changing neighborhoods of Central Brooklyn. Executive Editor. Brooklyn Deep reporter Andrew Caringi just completed a great project documenting the people living on our block, looking at how the community is dealing with rapid change. Lots of familiar faces from the 1200 Dean Street Block Assoiciation!

From the tree-covered stoops of their brownstones, residents of Dean Street, between Nostrand and New York Avenues, have seen a number of changing faces over the past decade. Boasting some of the neighborhood’s most active and influential residents, this block is now more diverse than ever as new residents integrate themselves into the tight-knit community that Dean Street is known for.

Through the lens of portrait photography, Brooklyn Deep tells the story of this rapidly changing block in Crown Heights North and the residents that now define it.
