Synopsis: Here is Arthur Miller on Midwood, Mel Brooks on Williamsburg, Spike Lee on Fort Green. David McCullough sees Truman, F. Murray Abraham deconstructs Brooklynese, Jerry Della Famina describes those hot summer nights, and Nora Guthrie remembers living with her father Woody in Coney Island. There's the West Indian Day parade and the Neptune Parade, Ebbet's Field Sym-phony and Norman Mailer in a homeless shelter, pigeon-racing and parakeets in Green-wood Cemetery, Junior's cheesecake, the judge in the Gotti trial, the world's best handball player, and a wise guy's guide to dining.

BROOKLYN, the book, tells it all. Packed with the accent, the attitude, the smarts, with nostalgia, respect, awe, laughter and news, BROOKLYN taps into one of Brooklyn's best resources-its army of writers-to tell the story of America's home town. For over 250 years immigrants from all over the world have lived in the neighborhood called Brooklyn, and fanned out to the rest of the country. An 81 square mile patchwork of city, college town, quiet fishing village, industrial center, bedroom community, and seaport, Brooklyn is the Dodgers, Walt Whitman, Mrs. Stahl's knishes, the bridge-and BROOKLYN, an obsessive and definitive book that's as colorful, interesting, and quirky as the world it celebrates. Fugehdabboudit!

From the Back Cover: Celebrate America's hometown in a rollicking portrait from Brooklyn's legion of writers, artists, raconteurs and neighborhood savants.

Arthur Miller on Midwood, Spike Lee on Fort Greene, Susan Brownmiller as a Flatbush girl, David Levine's portraits of the artists, Mel Brooks growing up poor in Williamsburg, Mara Faye Lethem riding the Cyclone and Eli Wallach extolling the accent. Teeming with stories, characters, myth, history, photographs, street smarts and attitude, Brooklyn is a love letter to the beautiful borough.

Michael W. Robbins and Wendy Palitz are passionate Brooklynites. He is a writer and former editor of Audubon magazine, and she is a designer and was the founding are director of Brooklyn Bridge magazine.
