Brownstoner Book Club: Historic Photos of Brooklyn

Brooklyn was once known as the “City of Churches,” but John B. Manbeck's new book, Historic Photos of Brooklyn (It's part of a "Historic Photos" series from the publisher), documents more than religious structures. He's gathered nearly 200 rare photographs from the Brooklyn Historical Society, Brooklyn Public Library, Kingsborough Historical Society, Library of Congress, and New York State Archives. Shots include the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge and the opening of the Brooklyn Dodgers. But getting back to the nickname, they sent us a sneak preview of some of the Borough's beloved churches.
