“My Brooklyn is an emotional and visually rich account of the eviction of blacks and immigrants from the heart of Brooklyn. The film challenges us to look beneath the gloss of gentrification that overtakes so many cities today to trace the winners and losers of urban redevelopment.”
–Sharon Zukin, Professor of Sociology, City University of New York, and Author of Naked City: The Death and Life of Authentic Urban Places
“My Brooklyn provides an excellent analysis of gentrification, using personal reflections, historical background and a look at the complex process of public policy making. It is a powerful tool for sparking discussion and debate.”
–Tom Angotti, Professor of Urban Planning, Hunter College/CUNY
