    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.
