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.
