Overview

Brooklyn: A Journey Through the City of Dreams explores the streets, neighborhoods, and legends of the most beguilingly diverse urban area in America. The icons of Brooklyn are celebrated-the indomitable Dodgers, legendary Coney Island, and the majestic Brooklyn Bridge-along with other treasures of Brooklyn, in an engaging and unexpected journey through Brooklyn past and present, real and imagined.
Brooklyn is where Walt Whitman wrote Leaves of Grass, Al Capone acquired his famous moniker "Scarface," and Barbra Streisand worked as an usher at the Loews' Kings movie palace. From Coney Island to Flatbush Avenue and from Brooklyn Heights to Prospect Park, Brooklyn: A Journey Through the City of Dreams celebrates the spirit, people, and places that have made Brooklyn a cultural icon.
