Ode to the Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge. Here it is in 2010 when I visited NYC for the second time.  I was with brooklyn bridge 10my cousin/ soulmate (in the blue coat) on a theatre festival adventure.  This was my first time across the famous bridge, and it was everything I’d hoped for and more.  Something about these epic man-made structures that just gets to me.  I grew up in a small city in British Columbia – so although I am impressed and in-love with natural phenomenons such as mountains, nothing has a fairy-tale quality quite like those famous big-city sights.

One of the great things about this bridge, aside from the double stone arches, is the fact that you can walk or cycle above the traffic on the separate pedestrian walk way – safe from  car traffic (Although I have encountered mach-speed cyclists. Stay in the pedestrian lane!!)

On my next visit to NYC, which took place just this past April, I experienced the return walk at night.  The lights of Manhattan calling me and my best friend as we skipped, sang and laughed with pure joy back to the island of possibilities.  It doesn’t get much better than that.
