F.I.B would like to direct you over to Who Walk in Brooklyn so you can read Brian Berger's interview with Jim Knipfel from the inside of the luxurious Shore Hotel out at Coney. They talk about more than just Knipfel's new book Noogie’s Time To Shine , they also riff on Brooklyn (of course), crime blotters, the band Killdozer, film noir, the internet, other writers and so much more. It's an interview that is more like friends hanging out talking about things like The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3. (One of F.I.B's favorites too!) so it's a fun read.
And while your'e over at WWIB , puh-lease click on the photos that are waaaaaaaaaay too small on his blog (so you can actually SEE them!) as Brian is an excellent documentary style photographer.
