Vintage BROOKLYN

Vintage Brooklyn

Brooklyn, "America's 4th largest city". A city that existed entirely separately from New York before 1898. Beyond the great bridge, it had a Mayor, a City Hall, a famed transit system, parks, museums and a flourishing community of factories and immigrants, merchants and swells. It had Coney Island, the Naval Yards and it had breweries. It even had a little baseball team called the Dodgers. Brooklyn had it all. And today, Brooklyn is bigger than ever. Time to retrace those steps of long lost trolleys, factories, cobbled streets and immigrant wards. Time to look back at Brooklyn NY.
