Brooklyn Illinois
4 May 2015

Brooklyn is the oldest  town incorporated by African Americans in the US. Between 1829 and 1839 it was founded by freed and fugitive slaves. During the mid-20th Century there was a devline of industry, which led to major lay-offs of jobs. Thus, Brooklyn has suffered high unemployment rates and has struggled with crime and a limited economic and tax base. The primary source of revenue comes out of strip clubs and bars.
