Brooklyn: Under the Bridges and Along the River


Yesterday’s post of the Manhattan Bridge caused me to think about that evening. With the crunch for space in New York, including Brooklyn, the space under the bridges and along the river has become an area for fun and recreation. Under the Manhattan Bridge itself were food stands and a play ground. The area is so attractive with the bridges and the Manhattan Skyline in the background that there was a photographer out making engagement photos. After our shoot was over, I walked along Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Brooklyn Promenade. Pier Two sticks out into the East River. It is not used for loading ships but has handball courts, basketball courts and a roller skating rink. Further up, people were out on a warm night having picnic s and cooking out. Even at 10:00 at night, it felt safe. It’s a part of Brooklyn that I don’t know how many visitors experience, but it gave me a better appreciation for the borough,
