The Alaskan Bush People family doesn’t usually venture outside of their cozy ranch life, but every once in a while, they get the itch to travel. Bam Bam, the older brother of the North Star Ranch, took a trip to the Big Apple, which must have been a surprising change of pace for this particularly reserved adventurer. Still, he seems to have enjoyed exploring New York’s popular attractions and sites. Recently, the Alaskan Bush People star posted some photos from a past trip to New York City. Bam Bam snapped a photo while crossing the Brooklyn Bridge.
In 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge became the first road connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn over the East River. At the time, these two areas were separate cities. With a central span of 1,595 feet, the bridge was also the longest suspension bridge in the world. It takes pedestrians about an hour to cross the length of the bridge. But if you’re a local commuter, it probably only takes about 25 minutes.
Alaskan Bush People Star Takes the Subway
Last week, the Alaskan Bush People star also shared a snapshot of himself riding the subway, probably for the first time. Bam stood in the crowded carriage with both hands on the rails. Of course, this was before masks and social distances became common practice. Bam Bam himself, looks a bit distressed, probably not used to being in such a small space with so many people coming and going.
Some fans have wondered if people in the subway recognized Bam Bam from Alaskan Bush People, and while it’s possible he signed a few signatures and took a few pictures, it doesn’t seem like Bam cared if anyone noticed him. The great thing about big cities is that you can easily disappear into the crowd, and so instead of being a reality star, Bam was just another New York tourist for a few days.
