Explore Brooklyn Bridge, Bridges and more!

It is exhilarating to walk from the Brooklyn Promenade to the South Street Seaport, via the Brooklyn Bridge.  The spectacular view of the New York City skyline is something that I never take for granted.

Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge holds a special place in my heart, because immediately south of it in Manhattan is a street called Peck Slip.

I will never get tired of the view while walking across the Brooklyn Bridge!  But, looking at Chinatown, from the Manhattan Bridge, is a nice change of scenery:)

The "Big Egg Hunt" is on!  Over 260 eggs are on temporary display throughout New York City.  This was one of several at Brooklyn Bridge Park.  For me, the building in the background brings back childhood memories.  My grandfather worked there for over 50 years.  I am amazed by the total transformation of this area!

"There's so much to do in so little time!"  People visiting New York City, for the first time, should squeeze a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge into their busy schedules.  But, for those with more time to enjoy NYC, the view from the Williamsburg Bridge is also quite impressive!

Triborough Bridge

Triborough Bridge

I admire the life of Robert F. Kennedy.  But, "Triboro" is the perfect name for a bridge connecting Queens, Manhattan, and the Bronx.  This photo of the bridge (and Randall's Island Park) was taken from the Circle Line Ferry.

"If you need a friend/I'm sailing right behind/Like a bridge over troubled water/I will ease your mind..." (Simon and Garfunkel, "Bridge Over Troubled Water")  Art Garfunkel's voice soared to new heights on what is regarded to be Paul Simon's finest song!  The NYC Ferry voyage, from Rockaway to Lower Manhattan, was calm.  Still, I had to carefully maintain my balance as I took a picture of the Verrazano Bridge:)
