Times Briefly Reviews Two Books on Brooklyn Heights History

Louise Casey/New York Times

Sam Roberts’ “Bookshelf” column in yesterday’s New York Times includes brief reviews of two books on Heights history, both of which have been reviewed here: Henrik Krogius’ The Brooklyn Heights Promenade, which review includes a link to Karl Junkersfeld’s video; and Martin Schneider’s Battling for Brooklyn Heights. Roberts recommends Krogius’ book for containing “accounts of [the Promenade’s] evolution and enduring charm and photographs by Louise Casey.” He calls Schneider’s book “instructive”, noting that it warns against complacency about the successes of the historic preservation movement to date, when challenges may lie in the future.
