Bucket List - Brooklyn Bridge Walk...

For whatever reason, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge has been on my bucket list. Maybe it's because of its prominence in the "Sex & the City" movie, maybe it's just because I'd never even seen it before, who knows. But, it was on the list so it had to be done. Luckily I had the perfect opportunity to do just that two weeks ago when I had to head to my NY office for a whole week. I arrived on Sunday and talked some co-workers into doing it - NY natives and they'd never even walked it - so it was a request they were happy to fulfill. 

It was a beautiful day in NYC and as always my first view upon leaving Penn Station was the Empire State. Always a fun site, always makes me snap a photo. It wouldn't be the only photo that day. The walk across that Brooklyn Bridge is amazing. The bridge itself is a work of art and everywhere you turn the views of Manhattan are jaw dropping - especially when you turn your head and suddenly see the Statue of Liberty in the distance. That got my attention. 








Of course the walk back across proved even more breathtaking with Freedom Tower rising above it all. A beautiful site that always makes me pause. 


I heart NYC & I also heart knocking this item off my bucket list!

Definitely a cool bucket list item! I saw Lady Liberty on accident when wrongly hopping on the express train that took me into Brooklyn! Got to see her twice! :)
