"The big folio "Encyclopedia of New York City" that [Jackson] edited in 1995 has become an instant classic. . . . The Neighborhoods of Brooklyn continues the project of a pro-urban history, this time by detailing in charming and highly accessible form the facts about a city that works."—William R. Everdell, New York Times Book Review
