A Sense of History
Lots of Italians = lots of churches. Brooklyn was once nicknamed the "City of Churches," and Carroll Gardens has its fair share. The most grand, St. Paul's Episcopal, was built in 1849 at the height of the neighborhood's industrial boom. And St. Mary Star of the Sea, built in 1851, was where famed mobster Al Capone married Mae Coughlin in 1918.
