A Hard Nut to Crack: Researching Your Neighborhood

July 22, 2012

Demographics and other statistical information are among the most difficult data to harness when you're trying to learn more about where you live. And what about researching the history of your part of the city? This workshop will introduce participants to resources and techniques both online and off to help you get a handle on your neighborhood.

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will be able to conduct basic demographic research.
  • Participants will know how to find a variety of neighborhood statistics.
  • Participants will be able to find information about Brooklyn and local issues using websites and resources both online and off.
