Description
This is a rich oral portrait of the quintessential American borough, in the words of such current and former residents as Spike Lee, Arthur Miller, Joan Rivers, Norman Mailer, Cousin Brucie, Maria Bartiromo, Pete Hamill, and Mel Brooks, who tell us, "I'm a Brooklyn guy, it's in my bones and it's there in Brooklyn. There's a certain rhythm you get growing up there. Every Brooklyn kid has it. Always on the right beat. The Bronx, no; Queens, you were out of it; but Brooklyn, that was it." Song of Brooklyn gathers the testimony of nearly 100 Brooklynites past and present, famous and unknown, speaking eloquently of what it was like back then, when the Dodgers played in Ebbets Field; later, when the borough fell on hard times; and now, when it has come roaring back in the wake of a real estate boom, giving Brooklyn new celebrity chic and hipster cred.
