Growing Up Greenpoint: A Kid's Life in 1970s Brooklyn

Front Cover
Burnt Jacket Publishing, May 8, 2018 - 300 pages
In Growing up Greenpoint Tommy Carbone captures what it was like to be a kid during the 1970s and 80s in Brooklyn. This funny, and sometimes emotional, memoir follows the years Tommy was educated not only in the classrooms of St. Stan's, but on the streets of Greenpoint. It was there, playing street games with friends, being cornered by muggers, playing kissing games with the girls, spending time with family, and constantly seeking out the best snack foods in the neighborhood, where Tommy learned a lot about life; although he may not have known it at the time.
