Praise the bridge that carried you over
One of my absolute favorite cities in the world is the big apple, the capital of the world, the one & only New York City.
I’ve been there so many times that I actually lost count! Not only it is such a dynamic, fierce, entertaining and educating city, it is a place where anything is possible.
Have I ever told you I actually lived there for a month during the summer? I lived in the borough of Queens which is across from Manhattan and that only helped me solidify my relationship and love for the city that never sleeps!
Believe it or not I had always been there with a group of people (family, friends and others). Only a few years ago I was actually able to go there all by myself and what a difference, night and day as they say. I couldn’t believe I could actually go anywhere I wanted and do what had been on my bucket list for years!
They say good things happen to those who wait and it was well worth the wait 😉
I was organizing my many photos stored on SD cards (yes I am still old school and keep it there but mind you I am going to copy them into an external HD) and found these I captured while I was in NYC.
It was a bright and sunny day when I finally got to walk on one of the most iconic and spectacular structures that connects lower Manhattan, over the East River, to the borough that bears the same name: The Brooklyn Bridge.
I remember clearly that I was really up for a challenge that day, so I decided to make it to the other side. Talk about a power walk!
Come along on this photography tour by
Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge.
Originally built in 1883, it was the longest and oldest suspended bridge in the state and country.
It is 1596 feet long (486 meters) and was the very first bridge constructed with steel wires.
Millions of vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists cross its lanes and passageways to and back from work. It simply is an incredible experience.

The view of Manhattan is breathtaking but so is the walk over the river.

It was such a pleasure and a feat reaching the other end, Brooklyn and admire the city of skyscrapers.
That was definitely one of the best memories from the trip to the big apple and I sure can’t wait to return over and over again 🙂
Hope you enjoyed the photos!
Now over to you.

absolutely love this walk. I did it at sunset September last year. Surprised myself at how much I loved NY. Currently living in the Maldives yet been dreaming of NY lately!! Very special city!
I’m happy you read that you’ve walked across this amazing bridge. Wow, watching the sunset from there must be quite a show!
Yes, I love NY too 🙂
Have a great time in the Maldives!
Love all your photos. The lines of the wires just add to the mystique! Excellent!
Thank you so much!
Yes those wires are quite something! It’s a wonder of architecture 🙂
So many fabulous bridges around. It’s very hard to pick a favourite but I do have a weakness for a couple of my local ones. 🙂
That’s right Jo!
It’s such a fab sight right?
Which ones do you like? Another that comes to mind is the London Bridge. So historic and stunning!
I especially like the Millenium Eye at Gateshead/Newcastle-on-Tyne and nearer home, the Infinity Bridge at Stockton. Both are on my blog somewhere 🙂
I will look them up 🙂
I love New York as well. Who doesn’t? Well, I am sure someone doesn’t, but they will never understand what all they are missing. So much beauty, culture and a beautiful variety of people…what’s not to love! Your pictures are great! Thank you, for sharing!
New York is special and we all have our own stories 🙂
There is tons to see and do indeed.
I’m happy to read that you liked my photos.
