    During my adolescent years a short run program on television was Brooklyn Bridge, a show about life in Brooklyn during the 1950s The last line of the show s theme song was that place just over the Brooklyn Bridge will always be home to me When I think of Brooklyn, my mind goes back to awholesome time when city children could stay out late and parents did not have to worry about their well being, where children frequented the penny candy store and rode on paper routes after school This During my adolescent years a short run program on television was Brooklyn Bridge, a show about life in Brooklyn during the 1950s The last line of the show s theme song was that place just over the Brooklyn Bridge...
