At five this evening there was a hint of snow…   Looking downtown from 42nd Street between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue, The Empire State Building still dressed in Christmas colors in the distance. http://www.esbnyc.com      http://www.bryantpark.org/

A Brooklyn Bridge Day

IMG_0591_1

Taken with my iPhone camera on one of those sunny Brooklyn Bridge days!  A favorite day of mine is a bicycle ride over the Brooklyn Bridge, some pizza on the Brooklyn side, and Peaches and Cream Ice cream… and the view of Manhattan is breathtaking!

Fishing the Narrows at dusk from the Brooklyn side of the harbor.  What you don’t see is the Verrazano Narrows Bridge to the left and Staten Island across the water.

Majestic Manhattan Bridge

image

Looking across the lower East River to Manhattan through the Majestic Manhattan Bridge.   Taken with my iPhone.  You can see the new Freedom Tower if you look carefully.  The Brooklyn Bridge is often the one photographed but The Manhattan Bridge is equally striking.  The Brooklyn side has a lovely park and I spotted a lone Cormorant in the waters below.
