The Boathouse in Prospect Park is located in the Ravine District in Brooklyn, New York. It was built in the years from 1905-07. In 1964 the Parks Department nearly demolished the Boathouse but a preservation movement saved the structure. By the year 2000, the boathouse was restored for a third time and it now houses the Audubon Center, the Audubon Society's only urban interpretive center in the U.S. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and was seen in Scorsese's movie "The Age of Innocence."
