Walking Across the Brooklyn Bridge

I’d never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge until I met up with some California friends in Manhattan. They were on a mission to see and take in as much of New York as possible in the few days they were there. I tagged along as they ventured to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.

We found the entrance to the bridge announced by a hand painted sign,

Brooklyn  Bridge 4

and discovered that we weren’t the only tourists with the idea for a walk.

We gazed up at the tower,

and played the ukelele in the middle of the bridge.

We paused along the way to enjoy the view.

We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, then turned around, saving the exploration of Brooklyn for another day.
