Ann Marie moves to New York City from Brewster, NY, which is on the Metro North Railroad's Harlem Line to Grand Central Terminal. The footage behind the credits was shot on New Jersey Transit's Northeast Corridor Line (photographed from the rear of a train leaving New York and then shown backwards so the train appears to be going to New York, although on the wrong track).

The opening for season 1 only is not the famous train tracks, but a breathless and beautiful Ann Marie running across a NY street to a building, dressed in a pale blue coat, white gloves and shoes, white pocketbook under her arm. The train tracks don't come until seasons 2, 3, & 4, and season 5 adds lyrics to the up-tempo opening music ("Diamonds, daisies, snowflakes..."). See more »
This was a hit in our home in the sixties, particularly with my grandmother - a hat and gloves San Francisco matron. In my world, her vote was the only vote that counted.
We watched it religiously. Along with Bewitched and Jeanie, it was one our favorites. But like many shows of the era, it hasn't aged well. As with All In the Family, its topical humor dates it immediately. The fashions finish the job. It now comes off as tired and forced, with almost a stage-play atmospheric. It is hardly the show I remember.
I contrast this show to others of the era that do not seem dated: the two already mentioned (Bewitched and Jeanie), Dick van Dyke, Beaver, and even Lost in Space.
I'd give it a 10 way back when, but today? A four.
