Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bridgeport by the Sea (Vaughn deLeath)
Subject: RE: lyr: Beautiful Bridgeport by the Sea
From my journal, 22 December 1972:

It took 1 h to get out of Manhattan. A little black boy next to me wanted to be reassured of every step of the way to Bridgeport (are we in the Bronx? in Connecticut?) & as we passed into that dreary town delightedly pointed out, from the vantage of the Turnpike, every street & hamburger joint of Home.
