I have only walked across the Brooklyn Bridge twice (now three times) during the course of my 2.5 years in New York. I still need to visit it at sunrise one of these days, as I’ve heard that is phenomenal along with blizzard shots.
This, of course, is not the Brooklyn Bridge but it is super close to where you get off of it in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Dumbo. This is the Manhattan Bridge and if you look closely enough, you can see the Empire State Building in between the platforms. Pretty awesome!
