Loew’s Pitkin stars in new book on Brownsville

A new book on Brownsville, Brooklyn is being readied for January 2008 release via Amazon.com.

Title: Brownsville:The Jewish Years

There is a chapter in it dedicated entirely to the Loew’s Pitkin experience. Other cinemas are mentioned in the text, but the Pitkin is properly the star — I have gathered a series of photos to give people an idea of what is was like in its heyday as well as some current shots. Delicious.

Sad to say, Poko Development has hung out a sign in front of the building — does destruction lurk?

Pass the word to cinema lovers, especially those who knew the Loew’s Pitkin in its heyday. Brownsville: The Jewish Years features an entire chapter devoted to the Pitkin experience, complete with photos — developers are lurking, is there still time to declare the structure a national landmark and save it?
