Summary From Manhattan, Michael follows his Appleton's General Guide east to Long Island. Beginning in Brooklyn, he hears the moving story behind the construction of the world's first steel suspension bridge high above the East River. He travels through New York City's first subway, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and follows in the footsteps of thousands of early 20th century holiday makers to Coney Island. In East Hampton he discovers home, sweet home, before his journey at the Montauk lighthouse on Long Island's eastern most tip. (S.1 Ep.2) (Class. tba)
