Grace Glueck (au); Paul Gardner (au). Brooklyn would be one of the largest cities in the U.S. if it hadn’t merged with Manhattan in the 1890s. This volume is an illustrated celebration of this feisty town & the personalities who’ve made it famous: Mae West, Leo Durocher, Danny Kay, Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Miller, Jimmy Breslin & Woody Allen, to name a few. The book is profusely illustrated with engravings & photos spanning almost three centuries: of the Revolutionary War battles fought on the site, the famed Brooklyn Bridge from its inception to its glorious anniversary & restoration, the colorful people like Diamond Jim Brady & Jimmy Durante who trod the boardwalk at Coney Island, “dem bums,” the Dodgers, & the stately architecture of public & private Brooklyn.
