Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This second edition of the 1991 guide Brooklyn: Where To Go, What To Do, How To Get There (St. Martin's) provides thoroughly annotated descriptions of attractions, shopping, and especially restaurants in New York's "most interesting, most human-scaled borough." Organized by neighborhood, it also catalogs events, "Best Bets," and children's "Best Bets." The restaurant listings, while more enthusiastic than critical, do reveal the enormous range of ethnic food in Brooklyn, from Cambodian to Mexican to Turkish. The book has depth: a mini-essay on the "Russian Night Club Experience," another on the emerging artists' community in Williamsburg, a list of basement stores run by stay-at-home Orthodox Jewish women in Borough Park, and mention of a church whose choir won a 1996 Grammy Award for gospel. While this is a tremendous resource, it is geared more to locals and frequent visitors--the author doesn't lay out, for example, a one-day tour for neophytes (though tour companies are listed). For collections where interest in New York City is strong.--Norman Oder, "Library Journal" Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Great Book

    Thank you Ellen Freudenheim for the book that I have been looking for! I am relocating to Brooklyn, and the only books I have been able to find were more tourist, or history based. Relocating books seemed to focus on Manhattan and the surrounding suburbs, and were technical, but yet gave general information about the boroughs. This book was able to tell me everything I needed to know about Brooklyn. I now have information on the individual neighborhoods, the history, the culture, the ethnic breakdown, entertainment, shopping, parks, everything... This is not a technical book based on statistics, nor is it a moving guide. This book is the flavor of Brooklyn. I now feel like I 'know' Brooklyn a little more. It makes the move feel less scary. I am anxious to get to know my city when I get there.
