From the Back Cover:

Brooklyn! The word conjures up a host of imagesófrom "The Honeymooners" and Ebbets Field to the Bridge and Walt Whitman, from Coney Island and "Saturday Night Fever" to the Navy Yard and the West Indian Carnival.

Brooklyn's unique character grows out of a rich and colorful history, a complex tapestry of developing neighborhoods, striving immigrants, meldingósometimes clashingócultures, booming and stagnating economic cycles. Guiding us into this historical panorama through five larger-than-life points of entry, Ellen Snyder-Grenier highlights the people, events, and places that have made Brooklyn, Brooklyn.

Lavishly illustrated with prints, paintings, memorabilia, and objects from The Brooklyn Historical Society's unparalleled collection, Brooklyn! will bring every reader closer to the Brooklyn of legend and fact.
