Is it possible for an author to mix a lifelong love of streetcars with a nostalgic look at a kid growing up in Brooklyn during the 1930s & 1940s? Stan Fischler has turned the trick with a unique & remarkable book, CONFESSIONS OF A TROLLEY DODGER FROM BROOKLYN. An author & Emmy-Award winning sportscaster, Fischler examines a dozen different streetcar lines he regularly travelled & weaves a series of intriguing trolley-related tales about them. Each of the lines & the various trolley models are vividly brought to life along with such neighborhood characters as Richie Mishkin, the telephone courier, Mr. Montague, the feared shop teacher, & Max, the waiter at the S&L Delicatessen. Trolleys are vividly described as The Sexpots (5000 Series), The Groaners, The Debonairs & The Pretenders. CONFESSIONS OF A TROLLEY DODGER FROM BROOKLYN covers long ago Coney Island, Ebbets Field, P.S. 54 & the movie theaters & stores of many neighborhoods. Fischler vividly paints a portrait of Brooklyn that is long gone; when the candy store was the center of the universe & the egg cream more coveted than champagne.
