Last Stop Kew Gardens

2007 NR

Novelist Robert H. Lieberman documents the unique history of Kew Gardens, Queens, in the 1940s and '50s by blending home movies, still photographs and interviews with celebrities who grew up there, including talk show host Jerry Springer. The vibrant neighborhood served as a refuge for many European Jews who fled the horrors of the holocaust. But it also spawned a new generation of fiercely creative children who were determined to succeed.
