Review by Theresa on 11/18/21 review stating Ken Burns: The Brooklyn Bridge
I bought this video for my Dad, because he was born in Brooklyn and has many happy memories of growing up there. His parents and extended family were from Italy and I have many memories of going to Brooklyn to see them as I was growing up, so the video was immensely enjoyable to me as well.

Top notch narration and in depth, accurate history at its best. I expect this caliber of video from Burns and I got it.
