Brooklyn is comprised of dozens of vibrant neighborhoods, each with its own distinctive quality and history. But for most people, New York City is synonymous with Manhattan, and until recently few visitors have ventured beyond the famous Brooklyn Bridge to explore the city's largest borough. With Walking Brooklyn, Adrienne Onofri has created an exceptional guide to and through Brooklyn's most interesting and notable neighborhoods, providing a mix of information about culture, history, architecture, places to eat, venues to visit, and more. From a walk through the Russian-influenced Brighton Beach, to the expansive Prospect Park, and out to Red Hook, Walking Brooklyn reveals the many layers and sites of Manhattan's lesser-known neighbor. This two-color book features 30 routes, a clear neighborhood map for each walk, black-and-white photographs, and critical public transportation information for every trip. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a ''Points of Interest'' section outlines each walk's highlights. The 30 walks include trivia about architecture, local culture, and borough history, plus tips on where to dine, have a drink, and shop. New title in the successful and award-winning Walking series
