Another Review of “The Rise and Fall of the Sugar King”

This is from Amazon by a reader: Well written and lively, Cobb has succeeded in bringing to life an underappreciated slice of New York history. Focused on the story of Henry Havemeyer, Cobb’s history weaves a tableau that includes the stories of the varied residents of the fast-evolving Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg at the height of its industrialization. A great read, and a great addition to Cobb’s other North Brooklyn histories. I highly recommend!
