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.

About the Author:

John Manbeck has written seven books on Brooklyn. He founded the Kingsborough Historical Society, was Brooklyn/Kings County Historian, served on New York State Local History Advisory Council, and was a Centennial Historian of NYC. He currently serves on many boards including Friends of 13 and Historic House Trust and wrote "Historically Speaking" for The Brooklyn Eagle. Marty Markowitz is the Brooklyn Borough President. Elected to the New York State Senate in 1978, Marty represented Central Brooklyn for 23 years. In 2001, he became the first borough president elected in the new millennium; he was re-elected to his third term in 2009. Marty began his career in public service in 1971, at the age of 26, by organizing the Flatbush Tenants Council, which grew into Brooklyn Housing and Family Services, the largest tenants' advocacy organization in New York State.
