Brooklyn Bridge

NYCVirginia Hart2 Comments

Since moving to Manhattan in May of 2007, I have done many of the "required" New York-y things. I've been to the top of the Empire State Building, I've seen numerous Broadway shows, and I've learned how to light a gas pilot light. I finally did something yesterday, however, that I've been wanting to do for a very long time: walk across the Brooklyn Bridge...and all the way to Chelsea! :)

(and no, I wasn't caught in the protest on the bridge where 700 people were arrested - thankfully!)

Yesterday's crisp fall weather was absolutely perfect! I highly recommend putting this at the top of your to-do list this season before it gets too chilly.




Here is a guide on walking across the bridge with information on where to enter from both the Manhattan and Brooklyn sides.

Some history about the bridge.
