It Happened in Brooklyn tells the story of mid-century Brooklyn, home of the famed Brooklyn Dodgers, NathanÃ¢ÂÂs franks, stoop-ball, stickball, and some of the best high schools in America. In this spirited recollection, more than one hundred voices chronicle and celebrate, in tones both humorous and poignant, the borough as it once was: a largely working- and lower-middle-class environment bathed in the optimistic glow of the postwar years. Illustrated with period photographs.
