Next up was Brooklyn Bridge. We decided we'd already done enough walking for the day (and again only had limited time) so we opted for the New York Subway. It was surprisingly quiet and easy to navigate! We were given advice to walk the Brooklyn Bridge, and then hop on the subway back to the city.
Walking the Brooklyn bridge had even overlooked by us in our earlier trips, so I am glad we got to do it this time. Its a nice walk with pretty skyline to boot – there was a cool breeze from the waterfront (and it was a hot day) so in spite of the crowd, the walk was quite pleasant. Its also not a long walk – you can stroll the length in less than 30 mins with stopping time for photos. There are two ways of crossing the bridge, on foot or on bike, but be careful not to stray on the bike lane in case you are walking or you will get an earful.
Kick start day three of your long weekend trip to the Big Apple by visiting The Brooklyn Bridge. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. From the Brooklyn side of the bridge, you can visit Brooklyn Heights or go under the bridge to the DUMBO area which is one of the most interesting destinations in New York City.Not highlighted on every weekend guide to New York City, DUMBO stands for “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass” and is a former manufacturing district that was deserted until two decades ago. Today, it’s a trendy nook lined with artist studios, designer boutiques, and even a poetry bookstore called Berl’s. A must for every New York City itinerary, pizza fans can’t afford to give Grimaldi’s a miss!
I have read it and heard it from so many people, '' Fall in love with yourself'' but I used to wonder about that feeling of falling in love with myself.'' After spending 10 days in the US, when I came back to my home ( I have considered Netherlands as my second home), put my bags in the room and then sat down on my couch. I would say that was the first time in my 25 years of life when I had experienced the feeling of '' Falling in love with myself''. And I would say this was the most precious gift I got from my parents on my 25th Birthday. :D They gifted me the freedom to choose,explore and dream.
Brooklyn bridge was the world's longest bridge and remains to be a major landmark of New York. It is around 5,989ft-long and provides a splendid opportunity for a relaxed evening long drive. It was the first bridge in the world to use steel suspension cables. From it, you’ll enjoy striking views of the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor.
