Brooklyn is one of the world's great melting pots: a place where cultures converge and creativity thrives. This handsome volume features fifty profiles of prominent individuals, all of whom were born, have lived, or still live in Brooklyn. With biographical details such as where they were born, went to school, or made a name for themselves, this book looks at Brooklyn through the lens of a contemporary outsider; it is Brooklyn heritage as seen from another perspective.
