Its nineteen seventies America and neighborhoods, parks, stoops, street corners, and local candy stores are filled with its inhabitants. The vibe and feel of the community is palpable as children play well into the night, void of any personal electronic devices. The Last Great Neighborhood is a tale of discovery, assimilation, evolution and the greatness of living in a vibrant and close-knit New York City community. Moreover, it is the story of all of our old neighborhoods, as knowing and interacting with our fellow neighbors was paramount in the development of one's own great neighborhood.

The Last Great Neighborhood is a unique, non-fiction tale, initially depicting the experience of an immigrant family as they settled into a New York City neighborhood. As the story transitions, it highlights the richness, diversity and obstacles found in the new land as seen through the eyes of the protagonist.

Furthermore, and essentially what the story truly embodies, is a retrospective into what life was like in a close-knit community during the 70's and 80's while transporting the reader to their very own upbringing and neighborhood, regardless of where they may have lived throughout this land, as many of the stories shared are highly relatable and reminiscent.
