The Dodgers and Brooklyn's Ethnic Isolation

(p.102) 7 The Dodgers and Brooklyn's Ethnic Isolation
Brooklyn's Dodgers

Carl E. Prince

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the cultural segregation before the bridges and subways connected Brooklyn to Manhattan. For its ethnic residents, Brooklyn was a borough of marbleized ghettoes. The isolation was reflected in attitudes outside the borough. A remarkably diverse and equally tense cultural mix was in a geographically contained area, and the Dodger ball club provided the major unifying focus amid this Joseph's Coat of a population.
