*And Thee, Across the Harbor

“I love to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. To be standing out in the center of the Brooklyn Bridge on a good spring day in the city of New York with the wind blowing. It is one of the great places in America. It’s like being on the rim of the Grand Canyon and nobody should miss it. And the fact that’s a man-created environment to me makes it all the more exciting.”

— David McCullough
Ken Burns’ America: Brooklyn Bridg

The title references the Harold Hart Crane poem “To Brooklyn Bridge.”

  1. Love the photos. They are so beautiful. I love the black and white and the line and shadows it creates.

    1. We DID have a blast! I might even consider the trek again – not at high noon, high summer. Maybe early morning fall, or late day spring? Would certainly recommend it as an experience!

  2. great pix – nice touch with the B&W treatment – i think it really works because of all the architecture (bridge, skyscrapers, gridwork, wires) in the frame – nice! i still think that’s the “ghostbusters” building in the city skyline shot (sans gargoyles, of course)!
