Brooklyn Bridge

Took the train out to Brooklyn this afternoon! Several years ago, when DVC and I were here for Christmas, we walked across the bridge and loved the experience despite the chill of December, so have been very excited to head out there again. Today was warm, sunny and clear - bingo!

Took the subway under the river and exited at the first stop in Brooklyn: High Street! Wandered our way through Brooklyn Heights until we reached the water, then walked throughout the lovely park which runs along the river. The weather was gorgeous, so tons of people were out walking/running/biking along the water (plus BILLIONS of kids on scooters, never realized how many parents let kids bring their scooters all over town with them).

A frenzy of activity at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Fabulous views of downtown Manhattan!

After wandering a bit, we spent some time lounging in the park and admiring the view back across the river, then hiked up the hill to the base of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. The walk across the bridge toward Manhattan is spectacular. Stunning architecture combined with breathtaking views in all directions. There's some construction going on, so scaffolding covers the walkway for about one third of the bridge, but it was actually nice to have a bit of shade to block the sun mid-afternoon.

Never fear, Brooklyn is here!
