Ken Burns and the Brooklyn Bridge

Ken Burns chose Detour to produce his fascinating audio walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Ken takes listeners over and under the famous bridge to reveal the secrets of its dramatic history and iconic architecture. And no one knows the Brooklyn Bridge like Ken Burns. Ken was born in Brooklyn and, as a young filmmaker, spent 5 years intensely researching the bridge for his first-ever historical documentary — a film that earned him his first nomination for an Academy Award.

Detour brought the personal perspective of America's most celebrated historical filmmaker to life in an engaging, interactive narrative in the audio walk format.
