New Lotts
The Administration Organization of the City of Brooklyn / J. Judd. Journal of Long Island History, Vol. 5, No. 2; p.4-16; Spring 1965.
Brooklyn, while still underdevelopment, joined together with other towns to create a Common Council that would allow for the creation of a city government, a mayor, and other important functions. Eventually, Brooklyn was able to function on it's own.

New Lotts
The Administrative Organization of the City of Brooklyn, 1834-1855 (Part 2) / J. Judd. Journal of Long Island History, Vol. 5, No. 4; p.39-50; Fall 1965.
A continuation of the previous article of the same title, the article focuses on how Brooklyn began to take shape and form it's own governmental structure and how it separated itself from New York City. During this time, Brooklyn also combined with Williamsburg and Bushwick, New Lotts, Flatbush, and New Utrecht, not only to pull resources but to find better ways to manage growing cities.
