brooklyn bridge. one of the oldest suspension bridges in the states. at one point it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. its become an icon of new york, a tourist hotspot. but i just didn't get it the first time we saw this bridge. we walked the entire length from manhattan to brooklyn, but i didn't understand what all the fuss was about. 

until now. you see, unlike most bridges, theres a method to enjoying all this bridge has to offer. brooklyn bridge trumps all other bridges because of the incredible manhattan skyline views it displays and so is meant to be walked FROM brooklyn TO manhattan so that you can admire the incredible sky line the entire length of the bridge, instead of walking with your back to it (like we did the first time). 
brooklyn bridge is a tourist attraction and so it can get busy. unpleasantly busy. and so its good to go weekdays during term time, earlier in the morning, or later in the evening. the best is a romantic stroll watching the sun set.

and so with this new found knowledge we took my sister and brother in law on a beautifully windy (hence the wild 'work in progress grown out bangs' look) cool day. nick was in charge of the camera, and granted he had some help with the settings, but didn't he do well?
