For Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week, I decided to show you some pics taken in Brooklyn last year. Here is the side edge of this famous old bridge, which spans the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn. It was completed in 1883, and is the oldest steel-wire suspension bridge in the US. When it was opened in 1903, it was the longest in the world with a main span of 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m).
Looking across the river, you can see the edge of Manhattan, with its iconic skyscrapers. Clearly visible, is the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere, the 1,776 ft tall, 104-storey‘ ‘One World Trade Centre’, which is built close to the site of the original ‘6 World Trade Centre’.
In the nearby park, some Canada Geese were having a bit of a party at the water’s edge.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my pics for Ailsa’s challenge. To join in and see more interpretations, just click here.
