Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Much under-rated in favor of its famous neighbor Manhattan, the architecture of Brooklyn gets the attention it deserves in this thorough guidebook. Morrone has written two other city guidebooks; he lives in Brooklyn and leads architectural tours. The guide contains maps of each area, complete coverage of its notable architecture, and biographies of the architects. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Read an Excerpt

This is a book about the built environment of Brooklyn, New York. I have lived in Brooklyn for twenty-one years. When I moved to New York from Chicago, I had no particular intention to settle in Brooklyn. I did so out of financial epediency. My neighborhood, Park Slop, was attracting many refugees from what, even in the immediate wake of New York City's fiscal crisis, were the soaring rents of Manhattan. I knew few such people at the time who actually preferred living in Brooklyn over Manhattan. That, in a very short time, I realized how much I preferred Brooklyn to any other place shows how fate is a funny thing.
