do it

do it: walk over the brooklyn bridge at sunset

On Sunday I went to a craft meetup at Etsy Labs, which is right near the Brooklyn waterfront. It was a gorgeous day out, so I decided to walk back to Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge. It's something I've been meaning to do since I moved here, and should have done while I lived in Brooklyn. I wound up walking over it right at sunset, and it was just beautiful. I walked really slowly, stopping to lean on the railing and take it all in. What a pretty city I live in! The walkway was crowded but everyone seemed to be in a serene mood. Walking around the city I'm always walking super fast, head down, pushing through the crowded sidewalks just getting to where I'm going. It was great to take in the views and have a meandering, relaxed walk. I will definitely do it again when it's warmer out... get an ice cream first and sit on a bench on the bridge and hang out. Above are my favorite photos... you can see the rest in my picasa album:
