Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge has been on my bucket list for years.
I finally took the walk from Brooklyn to Manhattan a few weeks ago. It blew me away. My expectations were that I would see the river and the truly amazing architecture of the bridge itself, but the views of the city were breathtaking. Walking across the bridge must teach scores of people about perspective in innumerable ways.
The NYC skyline is something that amazes me every time I see it, but it really struck me from this vantage point. I could have stayed up there all day. That is not an exaggeration. It would just have to be a day when it's not 95 degrees at 10 in the morning. Melting into the bridge would be a problem for me.
