Brooklyn Bridge @ NYC

Completed in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge has been serving Manhattan and Brooklyn districts of New York City for over a decade. It is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States.


Nowadays, almost every 'landmark' bridge in the world claims that it is unique in some way. The longest, the oldest, the widest of such and such type in this and that region. It is rare to find a bridge as prestige as the Brooklyn Bridge. 


The bridge is a bit like Sean Connery. It's mature yet classy; it's muscular yet gentle. It looks good in rainy days; and great on sunny days. It is popular for visitors as well as locals. What amused me the most was the fact that such historical landmark can still cater for millions of cars as well as thousands of pedestrians. 




Next time when you are in NYC, take an easy 45 minute walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn on the Brooklyn Bridge. You can of course start from Brooklyn and walk to Manhattan. (Note: Just don't look down if you are afraid of heights.)
