Welcome to Bay Ridge!
Ridgeites are aware that their neighborhood holds many historic sights, and now they have a booklet created by the Historic Districts Council (HDC) to prove it.
Bay Ridge is hot, and as a community we can see it growing, said Councilmember Vincent Gentile, who was among several attendees on Wednesday, April 10, at an informal and intimate get-together that took place at HOM, 8804 Third Avenue.
This booklet captures the soul of the neighborhood. Its small, but its a very important thing, he added.
I didnt just want to give it out, said Victoria Hofmo, the founder of the Bay Ridge Conservancy, who helped get the neighborhood recognized, about the brochure, insisting that first she wanted to introduce it to supporters and neighbors who would be happy to know that Bay Ridge takes pride in this guide to a historic New York City neighborhood.
