there are not too many places where you get to walk across one of the most famous, and most beautiful, bridges in the world. an icon for more than 100 years, the walk across the bridge on an especially sunny day is a delight. even if the weather isn't too nice, the bridge adapts itself to any conditions. make sure to pause to marvel at the double arches, the views of manhattan and brooklyn, and the williamsburg bridge and the manhattan brdige. to learn the history of the construction of the brooklyn bridge, be sure to read "the great bridge", by david mccullough.
