“Rutgers University Press, whose travel books typically focus on the Garden State, has been expanding into the Empire State. In May, the press is publishing The Brooklyn Experience: The Ultimate Guide to Neighborhoods & Noshes, Culture & the Cutting Edge by Ellen Freudenheim, a pioneer in Brooklyn guidebooks; St. Martin’s published three editions of an earlier Freudenheim title, Brooklyn!, beginning in 1991. The new title features a foreword by Brooklyn Brewery cofounder Steve Hindy and includes commentary and essays from the borough’s chefs, artists, and entrepreneurs.”
