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?
