Description

An unprecedented history of Brooklyn, told through its places, buildings, and the people

who made them, from the early seventeenth century to todayAmerica's most storied urban

underdog, Brooklyn has become an internationally recognized brand in recent

decades—celebrated and scorned as one of the hippest destinations in the world. In Brooklyn: The

Once and Future City, Thomas J. Campanella unearths long-lost threads of the urban past, telling

the rich history of the rise, fall, and reinvention of one of the world’s most resurgent cities.Spanning

centuries and neighborhoods, Brooklyn-born Campanella recounts the creation of places familiar

and long forgotten, both built and never realized, bringing to life the individuals whose dreams,

visions, rackets, and schemes forged the city we know today. He takes us through Brooklyn’s

history as homeland of the Leni Lenape and its transformation by Dutch colonists into a dense

slaveholding region. We learn about English émigré Deborah Moody, whose town of Gravesend

was the first founded by a woman in America. We see how wanderlusting Yale dropout Frederick

Law Olmsted used Prospect Park to anchor an open space system that was to reach back to

Manhattan. And we witness Brooklyn’s emergence as a playland of racetracks and amusement

parks celebrated around the world.Campanella also describes Brooklyn’s outsized failures, from

Samuel Friede’s bid to erect the world’s tallest building to the long struggle to make Jamaica Bay

the world’s largest deepwater seaport, and the star-crossed urban renewal, public housing, and

highway projects that battered the borough in the postwar era. Campanella reveals how this

immigrant Promised Land drew millions, fell victim to its own social anxieties, and yet proved

resilient enough to reawaken as a multicultural powerhouse and global symbol of urban vitality.
