Tom Campanella presents Brooklyn: The Once and Future City
In conversation with Phillip Lopate

America's most storied urban underdog, Brooklyn has become an internationally recognized brand in recent decades—celebrated and scorned as one of the hippest destinations in the world. In Brooklyn: The Once and Future City, Brooklyn-born Thomas J. Campanella unearths long-lost threads of the urban past, telling the rich history of the rise, fall, and reinvention of one of the world’s most resurgent cities. Campanella tracks the dreams, visions, and outsized failures that created the Brooklyn we know today, revealing how this immigrant Promised Land drew millions, fell victim to its own social anxieties, and yet proved resilient enough to reawaken as a multicultural powerhouse and global symbol of urban vitality. Fellow Brooklynite and award-winning writer Phillip Lopate joins Campanella in conversation.
