{travel tuesday} – the famous brooklyn bridge

7 Aug

the BB was always a place i would take visitors.  for one, it’s just classic cool. for two, it’s great exercise to walk it.  and for three, it was close to my apartment.

these photos are from two different visits to the brooklyn bridge.  both times i walked the entire length of the bridge into brooklyn from downtown manhattan.  it’s a great walk, a cool chance to see so much of both boroughs from a unique perspective.  a lot of times, when i had a guest in town – i’d show them the brooklyn bridge, then i’d take them across the staten island ferry, for a chance to see even more of the city from another perspective. i’ve probably walked the brooklyn bridge at lease half a dozen times now…

so, without further ado, here are some photos for travel tuesday… another snippet from my life in new york :

follow the giant white stuck-on human…

so many little messages along the way…

there’s something about these locks… i forget the deal behind them…

i love how the bridge frames the empire state building in this…

i just love this photo

this one, too. and i miss this cat.

yours truly, having a grand ol’ time…

random message at a cute little cafe…

i miss the random little messages the most…

cobblestone streets — mmmmm

no. sleep. till brooklyn!
