Publisher's description: From Coney Island's Dreamland to Schaefer Brewery, here are the buildings, industries, and sites that have been lost to the wrecking ball Brooklyn has had many faces over the course of its fascinating history, from a major center of industry in the 19th century to the hippest and most populous of New York's five boroughs today. Organized chronologically, starting with the earliest losses and ending with the latest, Lost Brooklyn features the much-loved buildings, industries, and modes of transportation that have been lost, replaced, or transformed in the name of progress. Losses include Brooklyn Naval Hospital, Brooklyn Shipping Piers, Brooklyn Sugar Refining Co., Brooklyn Velodrome, Coney Island Clubhouse, Ebbets Field, the Elevated Railway, Fort Lafayette, Fox Theatre, Fulton Ferry, Hotel St. George, Luna Park, Sheepshead Speedway, Steeplechase Park, Streetcars, and Williamsburg Plaza.
