    DescriptionMid-century Brooklyn was the home of the Dodgers, stoop-ball and stick-ball, a booming Coney Island amusement scene, and some of the best high schools in America. It also had a more somber side: gangs, red-lining, and block-busting. In this spirited evocation, more than one hundred voices reflect on the three decades in the borough between World War II and the Viet Nam War. Earthy and humorous, poignant and nostalgic, this book is an album, chronicle, and celebration of the Brooklyn of legend. Illustrated with period photographs.
