Prominent Promenade Pressman Calls It Quits

(Photo: Henrik Krogius, courtesy Brooklyn Daily Eagle)
Henrik Krogius, editor of the Brooklyn Heights Press for 22 years, retired this month. Krogius is a journalist and longtime chronicler of the Promenade that sits atop the BQE and affords unmatched views of the New York Harbor, Governors Island, parts of Staten Island, the Brooklyn Bridge--and, oh yes, Manhattan. That's his photo above from the construction of the BQE in 1953.

He published a book earlier this year called The Brooklyn Heights Promenade. He said he wrote the book to "solidify my claim to be the historian of the Promenade." Nicely done, Krogius, now get to work on the BQE!
