Brooklyn: Bridge on East River

Brooklyn Bridge

“I jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge and took a walk in 1876 today. I followed the Duke of Albany around old New York. Are you listening?”, Stuart says to Kate in the movie ‘Kate & Leopold’.

Brooklyn Bridge in New York has been featured in numerous movies and is an iconic structure of the city. A National Historic Landmark, it was opened in 1883 and is one of the earliest suspension bridges in the country.

Our first visit to the bridge began in the Brooklyn Bridge park, with a stunning backdrop of Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges – its a sight to behold. Undoubtedly, it is one of the best places to get a great shot of the NY Skyline and the bridge, with the Statue of Liberty standing far away on the other side.

For us, it was a well-spent Sunday afternoon, we enjoyed chocolate chunk ice-cream from the Brooklyn ice-cream factory along with the beautiful landscape of New York City. And by evening, we were back in Manhattan after a long walk on the bridge amidst a music video shoot, the zooming cyclists and the massive crowd of pedestrians.
