A Century of the Brooklyn Bethel

In 1908, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society purchased two five-story brownstones and a church in Brooklyn, New York. This collection of buildings (along with numerous other neighboring properties purchased over the years) would serve as the headquarters for the Jehovah’s Witnesses for over a century. Brownstoner has a history of the headquarters written at the time of the massive property’s sale in 2016 to everyone’s least favorite son-in-law (the Jehovah’s Witnesses moved their operation upstate to Warwick). Earlier this year, as part of the effort to transform this secretive compound into an office and retail complex, walls that once locked the property up tight were torn down and eleven elaborate gardens were planted facing out to the street.

Like I said in a previous thread, for a religion that believes in the imminent end of the world, they sure made some really smart long-term real estate investments.
