“Fodor’s Brooklyn” Wins Lowell Thomas Award

Brooklyn

Fodor’s Brooklyn won silver place from the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition. Sponsored by the Society of American Travel Writers, this is the premier competition in travel journalism.

The judges released a statement saying “the neighborhood-by-neighborhood approach to a somewhat compact geographic area is especially welcome … With Brooklyn overtaking Manhattan as the trendy borough, this guidebook feels especially timely.” The judges also praised such touches as the guide’s inclusion of “commentaries by Brooklynites rather than observers who parachute into a location and write on the basis of superficial knowledge” as well as the guide’s “well-designed” maps and illustrations.
