Episode 4 | It Crumples Into Dust While You're Turning The Pages
Spend a day with us – a day out of our forgotten past – starting with a walk on the Brooklyn Heights promenade where a mysterious plaque asks more questions than it answers. Then, a tour takes us underground and back in time. And finally, a giant fossil, dug up out of Brooklyn’s industrial age gets retrofitted for its shiny new future. Can you dig it?
Today's headlines: yesterday's news. Night or day, may it always grow in Brooklyn, USA.
Brooklyn, USA is produced and edited by Sachar Mathias and Emily Boghossian. Thanks to producer Sarah Kerson for demystifying the plaque on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Thanks to producer Fillipo Piscopo for digging-up the tunnel underneath Atlantic Avenue and to Emily for sifting through the rubble. And thanks to producer Sophia Paliza-Carre for taking us back in time and on a tour of the Brooklyn Army Terminal’s storied past.
