One of the goal's of our trip was to cross the Brooklyn Bridge. After our trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, we crossed back over the bridge by foot. The blisters on my feet were already starting to form, so the Google Maps predicted 45 minute walk to cross the bridge was not a happy outlook for the day. Fortunately for us, both of us are quite fast walkers and made it across the bridge in under 30 minutes. Photo taking was included in this time frame.
Although it was an overcast day, the view of both sides of New York was beautiful from above. The air quality felt cleaner, even though we were walking right above a mass of cars driving by underneath us. It may have just been the illusion of height that added to the overall grandeur of the experience, leaving us feeling refreshed.
