Two Steps Brooklyn

Runtime: (5M)

Categories: Documentary Super Short

Synopsis:

It amazes me that in Brooklyn we are 36,000 inhabitants per square mile – we are always potentially two steps from somebody.

The film is ultimately inspiring, prompting viewers to take the two steps towards their fellow Brooklynite and engage in conversation.
