Brooklyn Bridge through my smartphones

Brooklyn Bridge is indeed one of the landmarks here in the big apple.
Even for those who stay here for some times, like us :). 

Take the subway, walk a little bit and there we are.. 
Arriving at one of the most iconic bridges in the Big Apple.

Coming back to spend some evening (and also afternoon) with the kids and Udi, we can't help but take pictures here and there. And most of the time, we are too lazy to bring our camera and voilaaaa, we pretty much depend on smartphones.

We all know that smartphones are indeed smart. 
Panorama? Checked.
Selfie? Checked.
Short movie? Checked.
Slo-mo video? Checked.
Time lapse? Checked.

Everything is at your finger tips.
One magic button and you have them all :).

So I was looking at my photo album and I just realized that I have thousands of photos. Surprised, surprised..
As I am transferring most of those treasured, immortalized moments from my phone to my PC and later to my external hard disks (Yes.. I have used 3 1 -Terra-GB for all those photos and videos ;)> ), I found that I have some from the Brooklyn Bridge.

Some were taken last fall, some from recent visit this spring and the beginning of summer.

All of our visit to the oldest bridge using hybrid cable-stayed suspension in this country is always rewarding. And it is also easy to go there...Either you are heading there with the help of Waze or Google map while driving your car, or take MTA Subway line 6 to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall and walk a bit, you are good to go :).

Once we got the sunset.. 

Then the twinkling sceneries of Manhattan at night, as well as sweet ice-cream session in this beautiful bridge.

when the night comes..

The construction of this bridge was done in 1883 and up until now, you can see Brooklyn Bridge in many movies, TV series, souvenirs and even chocolate :).

There is something about looking at Manhattan with East River as the foreground. 
I have to say it is bellavista that I can't get enough of.

Manhattan on the other side..

We have passed through the bridge with our car as well but we haven't tried to walk across the bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn or the other way around.

So far, my favorite spots are the Brooklyn bridge promenade, the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory and Pier 6. Bo et Obi loves this promenade as well as it is perfect for scootering :)

It's just simply rewarding to witness this beauty. 

How about you? Do you like taking pictures with your phone? What's your favorite object(s)?

Friday Morning Ride at Queensboro Bridge

It's Friday...
One last day before the weekend is here and I will have extra time for my petite famille.

This morning we all went together as Bo didn't have his morning summer class and I signed Udi up for a NYC ID appointment at the UN Headquarters.

So, instead of booking online and waiting for at least another 3 weeks, we decided to walk in to the pop-up registration that happened to be set up at the UN HQ. How convenient. I'll share more details on NYC ID later.

Then there we were... All the four of us driving along through Queensboro Bridge to midtown Manhattan.

And what a clear blue sky...

Here's our Friday Morning ride at Queensboro bridge.

Join us on Skywatch Friday and enjoy great photos of captivating skies in many corners of the world.

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone...

Thank you :)
