The WPA contributed to several improvements at the Brooklyn Museum during the 1930s. According to the Federal Writers’ Project:
“During the past few years a WPA project has been making the [Brooklyn M]useum one of the most modern and pleasantly arranged in the country. The most striking change has been the removal of a monumental stairway which originally gave access to the third story, and the building of a new entrance hall at the ground level.”
