A History of the City of Brooklyn and Kings County

Höfundur: Stephen M. Ostrander Rafbók

"A History of the City of Brooklyn and Kings County" is a comprehensive account of New York City's most populous borough from the time of the discovery of America until the late 19th century. Named after the Dutch village of Breukelen, Brooklyn was an independent incorporated city, and previously an authorized village and town within the provisions of the New York State Constitution, until 1898, when, after a long political campaign and public relations battle during the 1890s, according to the new Municipal Charter of "Greater New York", Brooklyn was consolidated with the other cities, boroughs, and counties to form the modern City of New York. The borough continued, however, to maintain a distinct culture.
