The Neighborhoods of Brooklyn

The Neighborhoods of Brooklyn

eBook - 2008
Rate this:
From America's first suburb to its favorite borough, Brooklyn is by all accounts matchless. Taking readers away from the film sets and off the tour buses, borough historian John Manbeck reveals the communities that have defined its diverse neighborhoods, from the early Dutch settlers to today's colonizing hipsters. Through urbanism and war, depression and gentrification, Manbeck's columns, first printed in the Brooklyn Eagle and now collected here, show Brooklyn for what it is- a cultural and social nonpareil that just happens to sit across the East River from Manhattan.
