As a resident of Brooklyn Heights for nearly twenty years, I was delighted to come across this little tome--and to see the neighborhood through the eyes of one of the most original writers of twentieth-century America. Brooklyn Heights has always attracted writers--Walt Whitman, Norman Mailer,Arthur Miller, Hart Crane, Thomas Wolfe, and many others. (The 'Also Recommended' book below describes an entire houseful of them in 1940-1941.) But Capote describes the charm of the district's quiet streets with particular enthusiasm. No wonder he was able to complete 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' there. A great gift book--brief and delightful.
