It Happened in Brooklyn
An Oral History of Growing Up in the Borough in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s
Myrna Katz Frommer and Harvey Frommer
“Throbs with life and affection.”—Publishers Weekly
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.
Myrna Katz Frommer and Harvey Frommer are a husband-and-wife team specializing in oral history. The authors of such notable books as It Happened in the Catskills, It Happened on Broadway, and Growing Up Jewish in America, they live in Lyme, New Hampshire, and both teach at Dartmouth College in Hanover.
