About My Library
"Effingham Park" was a late 19th- early 20th-century real estate development in Gravesend, Brooklyn that never got beyond the naming stage. I’ve lived within its boundaries all my life, and since I likely have the largest collection of books in the neighborhood, it seems fitting that my library should be named after the forgotten Effingham Park. Incidentally--or not--Lady Deborah Moody (c. 1586-c. 1658), founder of Gravesend in 1645, owned the largest library in New Netherland, so I guess you could say I'm carrying on the tradition! -- Joseph Ditta
