The newly refurbished Brooklyn Historical Society (128 Pierrepont St. at Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights) unveils its latest exhibit, "Let Children Be Children: Lewis Wickes Hine’s Crusade Against Child Labor" on Dec. 13.

Hine’s 25 gelatin silver prints capture children at work in New York City, from 1906-1916, as newsies, bootblacks, pieceworkers at home and factory laborers. The exhibit will be on display through March 7.

Also on display is "Brooklyn Works: 400 Years of Making a Living in Brooklyn," featuring re-created environments of tenement buildings and sugar refineries, advertisements and products manufactured in Brooklyn and more.

Brooklyn Historical Society admission is $6, $4 students and seniors, and the museum is open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm, Fridays from 10 am to 8 pm and Sundays from noon to 5 pm. For more information, call (718) 222-4111.
