Brooklyn Public Library, Williamsburgh Branch




Brooklyn Public Library, Williamsburgh Branch





Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Opened in 1905, the Williamsburgh Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library was the second Brooklyn library building completed with funds from the large gift given by Andrew Carnegie to New York City in 1901. Of the $5.2 million given by Carnegie for the construction of new library buildings, $1.6 million was earmarked to build twenty branches in Brooklyn. The Wi1Iiarnsburgh site was among the first chosen because of the huge population in the district and the tremendous need for a new facility there. Richard A. Walker of the architectural finn of Walker & Morris was one of five well-known architects, all with Beaux-Arts training, chosen to design the Brooklyn branches. One of four branches Walker created, the large brick and limestone Wi1Iiarnsburgh Branch with its French-inspired design was called the "frnest of all the branch buildings. '" Situated on a triangnlar plot of land at the intersection of three streets, its broad Y-plan which includes a rounded rear pavilion housing the book stacks, is extremely well suited to this unusual site.

The Williamsburgh Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library fills the entire triangular lot formed by the intersection of Division, Marcy, and Rodney A venues. It is sited on a raised, grassy lot surrounded by an original iron fence. Faced in brick with limestone trim, the building sits on a raised basement and is two stories high, with smaller, one-story wings to each side. It is shaped in a wide "yo plan, with the rear section of the building projecting in a semi-circular arrangement.

Wide, paved areaways, set off by concrete walls, are located in the front and in the rear of the building.

Most of the windows have been covered by oneover- one metal storm sash and the windows underneath cannot be clearly seen. On the basement and first story levels, the window openings are also covered by plain metal grates.

The Division Avenue facade is symmetrically arranged with a three-bay wide center section, parallel to the street, flanked by wings which angle in slightly. Within this center section, the middle bay projects, forming a pavilion where the building's main entrance leads to a small lobby . To each side is a three-bay wide, two story wing with single-story extensions on each end. The expansive windows on the main story of each wing indicate the presence of large interior reading rooms.

The main approach to the library (enclosed by a recent gate), is located in the center of the Division A venue street front. It is marked by three steps up to a concrete plaza with low, rounded end walls topped by a low iron fence. Another stairway, flanked by a continuation of the low walls leads up to the building's main entrance. To each side of this stairway, other stairs lead down to the wide areaway and another entrance which is located under the stoop. The areaway has both paved and grassy areas. It is set off by a high concrete wall topped by a plain iron railing. The basement windows follow the same arrangement as those of the upper stories and are covered with projecting grates. The window openings are topped by flat arches in brick.

A wide stone water table separates the basement from the upper stories.

The entrance pavilion is defined by stone quoins along each edge. Windowless, metal doors are located within a wide, stone-trimmed round archway crowned by a fluted keystone and embellished with a paneled Gibbs surround. Separating the doors and the transom is a stone panel engraved with the word "WilJiamsburgh," while the transom itself is covered by a two-part storm sash. Large, squared copper and glass lanterns hang on each side of the main entrance.

At the second story is a tripartite window set on a continuous projecting stone sill with modillion blocks. Another stone panel is set into the wall below the center section of the window, while a flagpole projects at an angle just above this. The windows, which are covered by storm sash, have double-hung, eight-over-one sash in the center section and four-over-one sash on each side. Above the second story is a stone frieze and cornice carried on modillion blocks, topped by a stone parapet bearing the engraving "Brooklyn Public Library ...

Recessed to each side of this central paVilion is a narrow bay with a single, square-headed, window with double-hung storm sash in each story. At the first story the window is covered by grating and is topped by a small transom. Above this the lintel is formed of stone at the keystone and corners, with brick vOllSsoirs between them. A stone block marks the impost level on each side of the window. On the second story, a window with double-hung sash is set on a plain stone sill with a plain stone lintel.

Original drainpipes marlc the change of angle of the walls. Each side is marked by three bays, with those on the ground story having round-arched openings and paired, rectangular ones above. Each arched opening is edged by a brick arc











Cranachan...YUM!!




Cranachan...YUM!!





Cranachan is a traditional Scottish dessert. In more modern times it is usually made from a mixture of whipped cream, whisky, honey, and fresh raspberries topped with toasted oatmeal. It is sometimes called Atholl Brose (which is more properly a drink using similar ingredients). Earlier recipes used crowdie cheese rather than (or as well as) cream, and were sometimes called cream-crowdie. Other earlier recipes are more austere, omitting the whisky and treating the fruit as an optional extra.

A traditional way to serve Cranachan is to bring dishes of each ingredient to the table, so that each person can assemble their dessert to taste. Tall dessert glasses are also of typical presentation.

It was originally a summer dish and often consumed around harvest time, but is now more likely to be served all year round at weddings and on special occasions. A variant dish was ale-crowdie, consisting of ale, treacle and whisky with the oatmeal - served at a wedding with a ring in the mixture: whoever got the ring would be the next to marry.
