Review John Manbeck

Excerpts from a review by John Manbeck, official Brooklyn Borough Historian appointed by Borough President Howard Golden from 1993 until 2002.







Brooklyn Eagle, September 10, 2010:

"Inside the book are 477 pages of information about Brooklyn’s love affair with theaters, both live action and movie. The sheer numbers are overwhelming. The table of contents runs according to street names but in the index, theaters are cross-referenced alphabetically by theater names, which makes the tome ideal for a future online transfer of production titles and names of individuals."

"It sounds like a reference for theatre buffs and it is. But it is also fascinating information for the average Joe."
