In which neighborhood in Brooklyn did you grow up? Do you yearn for the good old days? This series of neighborhood books is the closest you’ll get to reliving the past—or, if you’re not from Brooklyn, experiencing the fun, the excitement and the tragedies, right from the memories of the kids and the parents who lived there during the fascinating middle of the twentieth century. These books walk you through the various neighborhoods in classic 1950s through 1980s Brooklyn, detailing the iconic things of our time. From the doctors who delivered us to the schools from which we graduated, from the playgrounds and parks in which we played to the street games we made up by ourselves, from all the great toys we had that have since been replaced by sharper technology, our first bikes to our first cars—we remember it all. Take a trip down memory lane with these coffee table books, written in an enjoyable, accessible, social media style. Revisit all the best places we ate; remember all the silly slang and the nonsensical stuff we used to say. As with every passing generation, we cling to the things that defined our youth. However, we who grew up in the fifties through the eighties experienced some of the most timeless pop culture in history, and this extraordinary series will allow you to share that with your children using a language they understand: social media.
This wonderful series of coffee table books contrasts bonding over modern social media with longing for the past. If aliens came down to Earth sometime in the future and found these books, they would act as a time capsule—a treasure trove of memories of mid-twentieth century pop culture, and a demonstration of twenty-first century netspeak and social media usage to boot. Use these books to share your memories with friends who grew up elsewhere, and as you pore over the pages, find all the similarities and differences in the toys you owned versus the mom and pop businesses that you frequented. Designed as coffee table books, they can be picked up and put down at your leisure; they do not need to be read cover to cover. If you own these books and display them in your living room, your friends will want to visit you more often! VISIT.. brooklynpast.com
