Brooklyn Bridge (1991 – 1993)
Sometimes referred to as “a Jewish Wonder Years”, this charming coming-of-age dramedy is told from the point of view of Alan Silver, a Brooklyn kid in the 1950’s who loves his family, his gang of friends, the Irish Catholic girl from school, and above all the Brooklyn Dodgers. New Yorkers of a certain generation will recognize the foibles of an extended family, struggling to live comfortably and happily as they all share an apartment in what is fast becoming the city’s most populous borough. Simply put, Brooklyn Bridge is about relationships. The child narrator learns to get along with his brother, his grandparents, his teachers, and ultimately his community. If we pay attention, we learn the same lessons.
