BROOKLYN HEIGHTS — Take a trip back in time on Fridays this fall.

The Brooklyn Historical Society, located at 128 Pierrepont St., will be offering free fall admission every third Friday of the month from September to November, the museum announced Wednesday.

Visitors will be able to access exhibitions, galleries and the Othmer Library, which holds thousands of books and historical archives related to the borough.
