My very talented housemate and friend took some amazing photos on the Brooklyn Bridge last Sunday. We frolicked under a looming thunderstorm, hopping like frogs, whirling like dervishes – it couldn’t have been any more fun. Or that’s what I thought, until we finished it all off with some slammin’ empanadas from Empanada Mama in the LES. Nothing like a day of creativity and for that I’m grateful!

The Brooklyn Bridge looms majestically over New York City’s East River, linking the two boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Since 1883, its granite towers and steel cables have offered a safe and scenic passage to millions of commuters and tourists, trains and bicycles, pushcarts and cars. The bridge’s construction took 14 years, involved 600 workers and cost $15 million (more than $320 million in today’s dollars). At least two dozen people died in the process, including its original designer. Now more than 125 years old, this iconic feature of the New York City skyline still carries roughly 150,000 vehicles and pedestrians every day.
