    borough residents burst into song and dance as they explore well-known locations across Richmond County where they may encounter a romance on the ferry or a betrayal at the mall. Are dancing turkeys, spot-saving traffic cones, and some charismatic mall walkers enough to keep our characters in this beloved borough, or is it time for them to cross the bridge to a new terrain known as New Jersey?"
