The Brooklyn Bridge opened today in 1883. Not really pop culture, but it reminded me of a tv show I used to love - BROOKLYN BRIDGE - starring Marion Ross of Happy Days fame. Do any of you remember that show?
It was a really quaint and funny little hour series from Gary David Goldberg (of Family Ties) about a family in Brooklyn in the fifties. I think it was kind of autobiographical for him. Nice little show that only ran two years - probably because there were no car chases or sex. It did win a Golden Globe and it was nominated for an Emmy so that gives you an idea of how good it was despite only running for two years.
I enjoyed the show a lot but my favorite part was the theme music which was performed by Art Garunkle of Simon and Garfunkle fame. He/they were one of my favorite musical groups from the sixties.
If you ever run across the theme or the show give it a look and/or listen, you won't be sorry! Anyway, Happy Birthday to the Brooklyn Bridge! (Image is in the public domain at Wikipedia Commons)
