In my book, A summer in Brooklyn a Summer in Paris,( lulu.com ) I chronicled my ten day holiday in Brooklyn and compared two of my favorite cities, Brooklyn and Paris. I think readers of my book who live in Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill might find what I said about my day in their neighborhood somewhat objectionable, and I seriously considered leaving it out of the book, but in the end, I decided to write authentically and let the readers come to their own conclusions. I happen to love the area and find that it is a lot like Paris in many respects, and I would say that most people are very hospitable and open. But it could be a bit more diverse, no doubt about it. Maybe if it were I would have had a different experience when I visited the neighborhood a few summers ago.

A nice little survey, but in mentioning the Church of St. Mary Star of the Sea (and that noted crook, Al Capone), you left out one of the real architechural gems in Brooklyn, the Church of St. Agnes, which is at the heart and soul of the neighborhood and is a fine example of the turn of the century neo-gothic revival, build in 1903 with the pennies of immigrants, with fabulous stained glass windows.
