Prospect Park. Boathouse

New York, Brooklyn


Boathouse on the Lullwater of the Lake in Prospect Park is located in the eastern part of Prospect Park on the northeast shore of The Lake. It was built in 1905-07 to a classical design of Helmle, Hudswell and Huberty.

It now houses the Audubon Center, the Audubon Society's only urban interpretive center in the United States.


It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.


The Boathouse was seen in Scorsese's movie: The Age Of Innocence (1993) as the Boston park where Archer Newland(Day-Lewis) meets Ellen Olenska(Pfeiffer)
