In July 1886, Steve Brodie, a resident of the Bowery neighborhood of New York City, made a bet to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge, into the river below, in exchange for the money to open a saloon. This was a 135 foot jump. He became legendary for the leap. But, did it actually happen?  Listen and decide what you think!  Also, on this episode, we present a short story from 1902 - Maude and Percy Visit the Bowery - which gives a humorous (?) glimpse into what happens when a naïve upper middle class young couple decide to experience the excitement and terrors of the Bowery. Although the story is fiction, it contains many mentions of real places and people of the time period, including Steve Brodie (!) and McGurk’s saloon, which was depicted in detail on a recent episode of our podcast.  And, for the enjoyment of our listeners, the story of Maud and Percy is presented here, as an audio play.    HISTORICAL REFERENCES   Steve Brodie: New York Times, July 24, 1886.
