Brooklyn

Brooklyn appears in numerous chapters of Rutherfurd's New York, starting with the first chapter, in which it is a Dutch settlement. In 1776, part of the action in the 'War' chapter concerns the Battle of Brooklyn Heights. The 'Brooklyn' chapter tells the story of the Jewish Adler family who live in Brooklyn in the 1950s.
