A Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge

I very likely would not have done this were it not for Lill, her youth and get-up-and-go. After her arrival in late afternoon we took the train over to the base of the bridge. This is not a cut and paste but rather Night Sight that certainly could have done a better job.

Starting from the beginning, here’s the Chambers Street Station.

We’re heading into Brooklyn around 6:15pm.

The crowds were no problem, they were cute actually, everyone striking a pose for their photo.

From Wikipedia: The Brooklyn Bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge, spanning the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn. Opened on May 24, 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge was the first fixed crossing of the East River. It was also the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time of its openingIts stone towers are neo-Gothic, with characteristic pointed arches...the city, in 2021, installed a two-way protected bike path on the Manhattan-bound roadway, allowing the existing promenade to be used exclusively by pedestrians.

At this point we are making a slow amble back to Manhattan, waiting for a black sky.

That’s the Manhattan Bridge, and you can walk across it too. The internet seems to think it is good because it is less crowded than the Brooklyn Bridge but it is bad because the fencing makes it difficult to get good views. We liked looking at it and if there was all the time in the world we cross that one too.
Another one, because.
This is what happened when I tried to do a pano.
