NY – Brooklyn Bridge

IMG_0605

 

If you have never gone across the Brooklyn Bridge you are missing out.  And if you have never done it as the sun sets, well… I’m here for you.  After a stop at Shake Shack (In-n-Out fries are still my favorite) in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn, I was ready to take in the amazing views.  The bridge was completed in 1883 and is one of the oldest in the United States of it’s kind (cable stayed/suspension).  It connects Brooklyn to Manhattan over the East River.  To the left, headed towards downtown, you can see the Statue of Liberty and to the right you can see the Manhattan Bridge.  The sun setting over the bridge made everything have a golden hue and I couldn’t help but stop every few minutes to just snap away.  Though it’s slightly over a mile long, I got into Manhattan about 2 hours later and headed straight to find some coffee.  Brrr!  Here’s a handful of some of the pictures I took along my evening stroll.
