After 10 years’ labor of love and research, Campanella pops off one obsessively collected fact after another, spinning Brooklyn’s vast history into a multi-dimensional drama. Each chapter focuses on a specific neighborhood and brings to light its historical residents... characters wackier than your roommate, in it for fame, money or God, and maybe some city planning along the way. Don’t let the size of this thing intimidate you; it’s a fantastic project book that, for me, has simultaneously kept me drawn in and helped me look forward to saying hello to these neighborhoods again.
