While researching in the early 1900s Brooklyn Daily Eagle I came across an article about children living under  the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge. The children referred to in the newspaper lived in poverty, with little adult supervision, but they weren’t homeless.

It was my imagination that made the leap from these real children profiled in the paper to the fictional, marginalized children you meet in the interstices of BROOKLYN BRIDGE.
