Scope and Contents

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce publications date from 1919 to 2004 and measure 0.63 linear feet. The collection contains monthly and weekly periodicals, annual reports, one business directory, and the Brooklyn Manufacturers' Industrial Exposition program (1922). Periodicals in the collection include Impact and  Brooklyn Progress, monthly newsletters, and  Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce Bulletin, a weekly publication. Both periodicals contain announcements for Chamber lectures and courses, as well as news of local business-related issues, such as trade, ordinances, and crime. Annual reports in the collection review the year's activities for the Chamber and include discussions of the impact of legislation and transportation growth on Brooklyn's economy. Lastly, a 1971 Brooklyn Business Directory lists member businesses of the Chamber for the year.
