New York Wedding In September
New York   |   September, 2012   |   Sighseeing

"Take a walk across one of NYC's most famous landmarks!"

Staten Island Wedding In September
Staten Island   |   September, 2012   |   Attraction

"New York's most famous bridge crosses the East River from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Taking a walk across this historic suspension bridge is a must-do NYC activity, with fabulous views on every side. Built in the 1870s and '80s, the Brooklyn Bridge was one of the first suspension bridges to be constructed in the USA. At the time, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. The soaring Gothic towers at either end are particularly dramatic when floodlit at night, their tall elongated arches an iconic New York sight. Check out the observation points under the support towers, with panoramic illustrations depicting the history of New York's waterfront, then stay on to watch as the city lights of Manhattan and Brooklyn switch on at dusk."

Joanne and Jonathan's Wedding
New York   |   September, 2010   |   Attraction

"The world's first steel suspension bridge, built some 120 years ago, remains a fascinating must-do attraction for city residents and tourists alike. Few walks offer a more dramatic view of the skyline, of boats gliding across the East River, the Statue of Liberty in the distant harbor"

Brooklyn   |   July, 2009   |   Attraction

"Bar none, one of our favorite things to do."

Joan and Gary's Wedding
Brooklyn   |   May, 2009   |   Points of Interest

"The Brooklyn Bridge is walking distance from the Brooklyn Marriott. You can walk across the bridge into Manhattan (it's a good 20 minute walk)"

Janet and Ethan's Wedding
Pocantico Hills, NY   |   May, 2009   |   Attraction

"Fun to walk across but Janet says, "Look out for the bicyclers!" Walkers need to stay on the southern lane and the bikers are on the northern lane. On the Brooklyn side it's Dumbo, on the Manhattan side, you'll be close to City Hall and South Street Seaport. Ethan warns of grifters looking to sell the bridge. It's probably best to start on the Brooklyn side and walk over toward Manhattan. Take the A/C train to High St."

Emily and Jason 's Wedding
New York   |   October, 2008   |   Attraction

"Walk across Brooklyn Bridge for great views of the city!"

Aaron and Amy's Wedding
Pocantico Hills, NY   |   September, 2008   |   Attraction

"(Aaron's favorite thing to do) The fanfare has died since 1883 when fireworks marked the city's first—and at the time, the world's largest—suspension bridge. But the behemoth of steel, granite, and wood that finally united the cities of Brooklyn and Manhattan remains a majestic, oft-elegized symbol of New York City's spirit of enterprise. Its 13-year, $18 million construction was marked by political squabbles, engineering innovation, and over 20 deaths, including those of chief engineer John Augustus Roebling and later his son and successor Washington, who contracted decompression sickness while working in one of the dangerous underground cylinders used to build the bridge's foundation. Today, the mile-long stroll across the Great East River Bridge is almost as exhilarating as it was for those first pedestrians who crossed the bridge having never walked above water before. Despite the cars speeding on either side several feet below, the central, elevated walkway’s communal atmosphere makes it feel like a genuine escape. (Walt Whitman declared it "the best, most effective medicine my soul has yet partaken.") Under the glow of lamplights, lovers snuggle on benches while watching a parade of cyclists, tourists, or families strolling under the web of suspension wires that rise to the 271-ft tall Gothic arches. — NY Mag"

Jeff and Kristelle's Wedding
New York   |   August, 2008   |   Attraction

"If it's nice (not too hot) it's fun to walk across. Enjoy some great views, and a great pizza place on the other side (named Grimaldi's, it's cash only and there will be a line)."

Jennifer and Colin's Wedding
New York, New York   |   June, 2008   |   Attraction
