Just one of those things you have to take a gander at. Even if it's just while you're walking by! Beautiful!

Got a great view of the bridge when we walked over the Brooklyn Bridge. I’m sure we went under it the last time we were here on a boat trip. Cool to see.

If you like bridges, check this one out...beautiful and not crazy big, connecting lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, with pedestrian walkways and great views of the city.

Has to be seen and is parallel to the Brooklyn Bridge, seeing them both side by side was incredible the gap between suddenly looked smaller and two very different structures.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
