A friend recommended this book to me. My father was born in Brooklyn and we visited the Greenpoint area when I was a teenager. That was many many years ago. This small book is very large, in my opinion, with the wonderful pictures and roaming vistas of the borough. The history was most interesting, but since I am interested in genealogy, the writers have encouraged me to visit once again, but with a special view point, genealogy. Readers of this book must be impressed by the amount of information the writers packed in such a small package. Be warned, though, your next visit to New York City might not be to Manhattan, but to Brooklyn. And a special visit that would be. Good reading!

This book is lovely. I hadn't read the small print so I was surprised when I bought it that is postcard sized - a hand-sized treasure.

What a beautiful book -- for your coffee table or your nightstand. It will make you proud to live in Brooklyn, if you do already (I do!), and it will make you want to visit if you don't. Francis Morrone is, to my view, our city's best architectural historian, and here he also brings his incredible knowledge of food, baseball, and just plain fun to bear on the city's most delightful borough.

A book for anyone who cares about the beauty and majesty of New York City.

While this is not a review of the book, it is a review of the author. I took a class from Francis Morrone at NYU and was captivated every day by his breadth of knowledge, his ability to either synthesize or extrapolate at will and, best of all, his ability to convey his undying love for the greatest city in the world. I could wander through NYC with this guy for a month and never tire of the stories he could tell. I don't live in NY right now, but every day I wake up missing the sights and sounds of the city, and that is in no small part due to what I learned from Francis. He is a cultural treasure. Take his class; walk on his tours; and buy his book. I'm online to do just that right now. Oh, and I'm pretty sure Brooklyn is his favorite borough, so it's gotta be good!
