Hardscape. If you’ve ever lived in Brooklyn, as I have, you know that your heart can and will break. In his book titled, Brooklyn, The Once and Future City, Thomas J. Campanella offers a large and loving picture of this special place. He focuses a lot on the physical space: buildings, parks, roads, while keeping the interest of readers through the heroes and villains of each time period he explores. If you love Brooklyn, you’re likely to enjoy reading this book, and will wish Campanella told more about the life and love you know has penetrated this place for centuries.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
