Overview

The city of Brooklyn became home for generations of immigrants during the massive influx of overseas settlers in the latter 19th and early 20th centuries. They formed neighborhoods that became celebrated for their tight-knit ethnicity. Relive the early days of Brooklyn through 329 postcard and contemporary images. See where popular seashore recreation began at Coney Island, stroll through Prospect Park, cross the Brooklyn Bridge, and tour the smaller residential neighborhoods like Flatbush. With an informative and engaging text to accompany the images, trace the major demographic shifts and commercial change of Brooklyn. A great keepsake for residents past and present and a wonderful resource for historians and educators.
