Questions to How Well Do You Know Brooklyn?

March 24, 2021

Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! answers in the category “Brooklyn ‘99” I posted last month:

  1. In 1899 this gangster-to-be was born in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard section; no reports of any scars on his face. – Who is Al Capone?
  2. As it was shedding concrete, this alliterative structure was “Falling Down” in the subject of a 1999 article.  – What is the Brooklyn Bridge?
  3. This sitting president visited Brooklyn in 1899 & cabled Admiral Dewey on the anniversary of his triumph in the Philippines.  – Who is McKinley?
  4. In 1899 the Brooklyn Superbas won the National League pennant; 100 years later, they’d have moved far away and become this team. – Who are the Los Angeles Dodgers?
  5. In 1999 this novel about h Tourette’s by Brooklyn native Jonathan Lethem was the basis of a 2019 Edward Norton film.  – What is “Motherless Brooklyn?”

Even though I was born in Brooklyn, I only got three of them correct; how did you do?

  1. This musical wraps up with “A New Deal for Christmas,” featuring FDR, Daddy Warbucks & the gang.. – What is “Annie?”
  2. A group of homeless people begin the not so merry “Christmas Bells” in this Jonathan Larson musical.  – What is “Rent?”
  3. This musical auntie sings “We need a little Christmas, right this minute, candles in the window, carols at the spinet.”   – What is “Mame?”
  4. In 2018 these mind-blowing magicians with monickers like the Deductionist debuted their “Magic of the Holidays” show. – Who are The Illusionists?
  5. Based on the 1954 film, a musical called this composer’s “White Christmas” livened up the holidays in 2008 & 2009..  – Who is Irving Berlin?

How Well Do You Know Brooklyn?

March 8, 2021

One of the categories on a recent Jeopardy! episode was “Brooklyn ‘99.”  Here are the answers; just come up with the correct question for each.  I’ll give those questions in a future post:

  1. In 1899 this gangster-to-be was born in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard section; no reports of any scars on his face.
  2. As it was shedding concrete, this alliterative structure was “Falling Down” in the subject of a 1999 article.
  3. This sitting president visited Brooklyn in 1899 & cabled Admiral Dewey on the anniversary of his triumph in the Philippines.
  4. In 1899 the Brooklyn Superbas won the National League pennant; 100 years later, they’d have moved far away and become this team.
  5. In 1999 this novel about h Tourette’s by Brooklyn native Jonathan Lethem was the basis of a 2019 Edward Norton film.

This episode was the last one Alex Trebek recorded before his death.  The producers had a very nice tribute to Alex at the end of the show.
