Taken from Fulton's Ferry Landing
The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspsension bridges in the United States. It was completed in 1883.
These pictures are taken from the spot where Robert Fulton operated his steam ferry in the early 1800's.
This is also near the site of the print shop in which Walt Whitman in 1855 set up type for his Leaves of Grass.
While I was taking pictures of the bridge I started watching the other tourists taking pictures and began taking pictures of tourists taking pictures!
The buildings across the water are in downtown Manhattan.
