Peggy from Bay Ridge


"I’m from Bay Ridge,*" Peggy tells Joan, who stares at her with hungry feline boredom. "We have manners."

    I knew that show had placed a premium on research when the name of the secretary from Bay Ridge wasn’t Esposito or Pugliese or Shea, but Olson. Not many people today – even in Brooklyn – remember that Bay Ridge was once known for its large community of Norwegian immigrants.

    Thanks for the fact!
