We offer a dynamic calendar of programs, outings, events and classes through Watermark University.
The Watermark at Brooklyn Heights
In this vibrant community, the days can unfold in countless ways. Perhaps a rehearsal for a member theatrical production in our auditorium is on the schedule, or a master class with a local artist in our studio. A music recital may be on the calendar in the afternoon, or a guest lecture from a famous local author. Maybe it’s time for a competitive game of backgammon in the club room, or a film in the performing arts theater. Or a visit our art gallery to see the new exhibition.
Food aficionados may enjoy culinary classes in our open kitchen, to learn about addressing certain health conditions through nutrition. And a full offering of mind/body/spirit integrative wellness classes and guided practices awaits at the wellness center.
Sometimes the best activity is no activity at all: To wind down the day, head to Biblio for a craft cocktail, sit in a high-back chair, and enjoy reading your favorite book, or engaging in conversation.
Our award-winning collection of enrichment offerings features activities and programs in the seven dimensions of wellness—spiritual, emotional, vocational, physical, social, environmental, and intellectual. From neurodiversity to clay modeling, wine tasting to folk dancing, there is something for everyone. Watermark University programs are available to residents at all care levels.
Brooklyn Heights has a small-town feel, and it’s an easy neighborhood to stroll, especially on the family-friendly Brooklyn Promenade. With convenient access to trains and buses into Manhattan, along with concierge service to book activities and excursions, it’s easy for residents to make the most of what this great city has to offer. Or stay close to home and browse local bookstores and art galleries, treat yourself to lunch, or find an empty bench and sit in the sun while you watch the world go by.
For those who haven’t yet tried virtual reality, it is not to be missed! The program “transports” residents, virtually, to far flung destinations in a different geographic location–or even back in time. Explore the wreck of the Titanic, watch the Apollo 11 moon landing, or head to Tanzania on safari. it’s simply spectacular—and it helps strengthen and stimulate the mind. But we have to warn you: it’s highly addictive!
