 About the Book 

Diversity and distinctiveness are part of the historic fabric of Brooklyn--they are part of its people, landmarks, favorite events and more. Borough Historian John Manbeck has collected the stories that reveal the history and spirit of this ever-growing metropolis. Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden beautify the borough, which is returning to its roots with a vibrant urban farming movement. From stories of murderous pirates who once besieged Sheepshead Bay to tales of the still-beloved Brooklyn Dodgers who played at Ebbets Field, Manbeck traces the long and colorful history. Explore the forgotten neighborhoods, vanishing waterfront and other attractions that show how and why Brooklyn has endured.
