The Lincoln Center Young Patrons relived the Roaring ’20s with a two-tiered gala inside one of Brooklyn’s architectural treasures: the Weylin. For one night only, what people knew as the historic Williamsburg Savings Bank was transformed, with a swank speakeasy downstairs and a music-fueled party overhead — all designed to transport guests back to the Jazz Age.
