NYC's Brooklyn Bridge At Sunset

The Story

I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy photographing Brooklyn Bridge Park. And just when I think there is nothing left for me to capture — this image calls to me. Where am I specifically? Pier 1 — north of the Brooklyn Bridge. And what is interesting about my time at Brooklyn Bridge Park — is that I have never traveled south of Pier 1. Well, that is not entirely true. Last summer my family and I walked from Pier 6 – Pier 1.

But I think I only took one photograph — and it was not very good :-)

Over the past year Piers 2 – 6 have received a great of work. The City of New York is building-out this part of the Brooklyn shore. Pier 6 now has a huge soccer field. Around Pier 2 there is a public pool. And the remaining piers are being worked on as I write this post. Needless to say when construction is complete this entire section will be a very nice recreational are.

But if you do nothing else but hangout at Brooklyn Bridge Park — you will be very happy you did. But bring family, friends or lovers. The Park is best enjoyed with those you love.
