If you are ever lucky enough to visit New York, make sure you walk the Brooklyn Bridge and take some black-and-white film with you. The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. With a main span of 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m), it was the longest suspension bridge in the world from its opening until 1903, and the first steel-wire suspension bridge.
When my sister and I visited New York back in 2011 for the 3rd time, I had strangely never gone to the Brooklyn Bridge before. So we decided to take the subway over to Brooklyn then walk from the bridge back in to New York itself. Pedestrian access to the bridge from the Brooklyn side is from either Tillary/Adams Streets (in between the auto entrance/exit) or a staircase on Prospect St between Cadman Plaza East and West. In Manhattan, the pedestrian walkway is accessible from the end of Centre Street or through the unpaid south staircase of Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall IRT subway station.
It’s a great way to do it and experience the bridge in all it’s splendor and enter New york with a panoramic viewpoint. The Brooklyn Bridge has a wide pedestrian walkway open to walkers and cyclists, in the center of the bridge and higher than the automobile lanes.
The black-and-white film really brings out the bridge’s character and the people walking on it. It’s a great place to take in New York style and just people watch.

Before moving to New York City, I was told that people keep to themselves. Thus, I set forth to put myself out there and create connections with the people in my community, using the Lomo'Instant as an icebreaker! I was proven wrong—if you show an ounce of kindness to anyone, they will overflow in return.
