Brighton Beach

Directed by Carol Stein and Susan Wittenberg | 56 mins | 1980
Old Brooklyn lives again in Carol Stein and Susan Wittenberg’s good-humored 1980 time-capsule documentary about a melting-pot neighborhood of Jewish Soviet immigrants, Puerto Ricans, and other New Yorkers—right next to Coney Island’s attractions. Nested among the interviews with candid residents is footage from the early 20th-century, all part of the city’s grand pageant.
