Silent Sunday – Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge would have to be one of the most famous bridges in the world and a good subject for Silent Sunday. Hopefully, I haven’t already done it.

Silent Sunday – Brooklyn Bridge

If you go to New York, it has to be one of those places that you feel you have to go to. Really, if you are able, walk over it. It was definitely somewhere I wanted to go.

When I spent the day with my friends there we walked over it to Brooklyn. In hindsight, it probably wasn’t the best time to do. At the end of the day after we had been walking around everywhere. My feet were very sore and that bridge is very long. It takes a while to walk over it.

It was an incredible day and one I’ve thought about a lot over the years. A day that I got to meet a few people from the blogging world. Still, by the end of that day, my feet had blisters on blisters. It took a while for them to recover. New York is a massive, massive city. I don’t think I really understood that before I went there. It is beautiful but massive.

At the end of the day, we found ourselves on the Brooklyn side of the bridge. There was no way I was walking back, or even walking to the subway. Nope, not me. I needed a taxi. So that is what we did, we got a taxi to get back. Thank goodness.

Anyway here are some photos of the bridge. Enjoy your Sunday.

  1. Fantastic photos of this iconic structure!

  2. I’ve walked both directions on that bridge. The sunset view of Manhattan from down under the Manhattan bridge overpass (DUMBO) is incredible.

    • We sort of saw it from there, we were at the bottom of the Manhattan bridge, but the night I was there we really didn’t get a sunset, unfortunately. Thank you Khurt.

  3. Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge is something one needs to do according to websites that list the things to do in New York. I had to cross it a few times during train breakdowns and strikes if I remember correctly. My fondest memories was crossing to go to Coney Island with my family. Great memories. Thanks for the post. Great photos.

    • That must have been great that you can cross it anytime you want. I would love to do in the morning, and maybe when it is snowing. Good to hear you have some good memories of it. Thank you.

  4. Beautiful images, Leanne…you were rewarded handsomely for your effort and tired feet in getting the photographs.
