Never fear, Brooklyn is here

Williamsburg BridgeLast weekend I went to New York for some fabric shopping. I hung out in Brooklyn with my friend and on Saturday we walked across the Williamsburg bridge on the way to Mood. I took some photos of the stunning bridge which has all forms of transportation in one: pedestrian path, bike path, 8 car lines and 3 subway lines. They are all running at once. It reminded me of schools of fish crossing each other in the ocean. Or blood cells. Or spaceships. You could feel the energy come up from the floor through your feet.

The bridge has been around for over 100 years and is one of 5 suspension bridges going into NY. At 7,308 feet long, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it first opened in 1903. The Williamsburg bridge connects my two favorite neighborhoods--Williamsburg and the Lower East Side--over the East River. If you've never walked across it, you definitely should next time you are in New York!
