Brooklyn Bridge

We walked the Brooklyn Bridge today.  My friend Sherri and her husband Steve and I.  We started out down by the South Street Seaport, where going is tough, cobblestone streets, and a smoker in the window.

Big new sky scraper at Pace University and then we are on the bridge.  Tons of walkers, a walk for Juvenile Diabetes is going on, and the walkway is filled from side to side, not even room for the bicycles.

We made our way up, and here are more photos:

Lucky, we ran into a bride and groom - what  a great spot for a picture!
The Williamsburg Bridge, which we walked back to Manhattan.  Lots of walking today!
The park under the Brooklyn Bridge, such a great spot.

And the view of the Brooklyn Bridge from the Williamsburg Bridge - I wish you all could have come with us!
