Not only does the Brooklyn Bridge carry various traffic from borough to borough, it has also been a wine cellar. It's said a 102-year-old faded inscription was found in one of the cellars in 1978 "Who loveth not wine, women and song, he remaineth a fool his whole life long".
The Brooklyn Bridge completed in 1883 is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the US. It connects Manhattan and Brooklyn, spanning 1595.5 feet.

Across the street from where the Twin Towers once stood, Trinity Church served as a resting place for first responders in the 9/11 terrorist attack. When we visited Trinity Church, this particular display really hit home. You can almost see the fireman slumped asleep from sheer exhaustion still wearing his protective gear. Always, always remember our first responders and military personnel who often times pay the ultimate price to keep us safe.
The St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC is truly hypnotic.
Freedom Tower stands tall as the sunset reflects a beautiful back drop.
An early morning start at the Brooklyn Bridge, so beautiful and serene, the calm before the storm of city life.
One of many different takes on one of the most notable bridges in the world. I love this city!
Looking back at our exchange as we head in from another long day in one of the most spectacular cities in the world.

A perfect resting spot at the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
A shot of one of my favorite cities from the top of the Empire State Building. I sound like an old cliche....but....I love New York! I love the energy, the people, the history, even the subways!
"Imagine all the people living life in peace".....hard to not stop and think of this when walking through Central Park's Strawberry Fields. Was it peace, atheism, possibly socialism John was speaking of? He definitely left too soon with words unsaid and work undone.
In the foreground is Trinity Church Cemetery. In the background is Freedom Tower rising from the ashes of one the most devastating events in US history. To me this photo is a representation of how life does go on. Progress has a way of moving us forward.
