Walking Over the Brooklyn Bridge

I’m a Brooklyn girl. Even when my family moved to the Bronx, I knew I’d return. And I did. So it seems funny that I never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge until last month. Then again, how many people play tourist in their own city?
Completed in 1883, it was the first steel suspension bridge, 1,600 feet across (the longest span in the world at the time). The history is fascinating and can be found at http://www.history.com/topics/brooklyn-bridge.
But I was determined that this year would be the year I walked across, joining hundreds of workers doing their daily commute and tourists enjoying the novelty.
I have no idea what those circles are on the bridge.
Even the waterways have traffic.
I was a bit hot and sweaty by the time I walked to my subway line on the other side, but extremely satisfied. And yep, I’ll do it again one day.
