Even after all these years, I still remember how much I enjoyed this mini-series and how much I wish it had been recorded for purchase. The story of the turn of the century in NYC was so well done, with many excellent actors and actresses. Some, like William Hurt and Victor Garber, went on to do many good roles. But none like this series. Everyone in it brought history to life.........the poor class with the Irish family, the male members helping to build the Brooklyn Bridge....the middle class who were living much better and exploring the new world (including the use of the box camera by the wife to record history......and the wealthy class, which included the Roosevelts. Unless someone from the Children's Television Workshop which produced it takes the initiative to make it available, if you have not seen it, you never will. What a blessing to all of us who had the opportunity to see it. A piece of history no longer available.
