Go beyond the trendy cafes, clubs and boutiques of Williamsburg, and meet the other, struggling residents of the burgeoning neighborhood in an exhibition of 51 black-and-white photographs by Regina Monfort, titled "Beyond Grand Street, Brooklyn, NY." The exhibit will open at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Library at Grand Army Plaza on March 5 with a reception from 6:30 pm to 8 pm in the Trustees Room.

Monfort spent seven years photographing the lives of Puerto Rican and Dominican teenagers in Williamsburg’s South Side barrio. "Betty" (Lindsay Park Houses, 2000) is pictured at left. The exhibit will remain on display in the Grand Lobby through April 27. For more information, call (718) 230-2100 or visit the Web site at www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org.
