Each and every visit to NY, I try to walk at least once over the Brooklyn Bridge to enjoy the vistas. Thank you for bringing back beautiful memories with your image. I like it.

Merisi -
For those who like vistas, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the nicest things experiences, but I imagine most visitors (and residents) never do it.
