Kay Hymowitz on her new book: Brooklyn Today -- Just decades ago, the Brooklyn stereotype was typified by television programs such as “The Honeymooners” and “Welcome Back, Kotter”—comedies about working-class sensibilities, deprivation, and struggles. Today, the borough across the East River from Manhattan is home to trendsetters, celebrities, and enough “1 percenters” to draw the Occupy Wall Street protests across the Brooklyn Bridge. “Tres Brooklyn,” has become a compliment among gourmands in Parisian restaurants. Hymowitz chronicles the policies and events that transformed the borough so dramatically and considers whether the borough’s new wealth will lift up some of the borough’s most blighted neighborhoods
