Pop Tourist: Buchanan High













Does the latest episode of Just My Show have "Welcome Back, Kotter" on your mind? Take a trip back to Brooklyn where it all started.

The Sweathogs may have gone to class on a Hollywood soundstage, but Bensonhurst's New Utrecht High School served as Buchanan High's exterior in the "Kotter" opening credits.

New Utrecht High School: 1601 80th Street, Brooklyn, NY

Subway: D to 79th Street (Brooklyn's elevated West End Line will be familiar to fans of "Kotter", "Saturday Night Fever" and anyone who's seen the famous chase scene in "The French Connection.")
