Metropolitan Avenue

PBS Premiere: August 16, 1988

Synopsis

Metropolitan Avenue is an inspiring contemporary story about women who strive to combine new roles and old values in our rapidly changing society. We are introduced to a lively Brooklyn neighborhood which, like many urban areas, faces problems caused by racial tensions and cuts in municipal services. But in this case, a group of "traditional" homemakers from varied ethnic backgrounds rise to the challenge and become leaders in the effort to save their community.

Critical Acclaim

As frank and robust and unafraid and wonderful as the handful of women who are its 'stars'. A warming, lingering, renewing portrait of bedrock America.”
