After countless attempts to get a money-shot photo of the Brooklyn Bridge, I finally have decent ones. Lol I've been living in New York for over 2 years now and every time a family or a friend comes to visit, the bridge is almost always on the list. But not once had I ever had a photo that's acceptable (at least to me). There's always one set back factor that hampers the opportunity like poor photo quality or a lot of tourists blocking or bad weather or too much clouds with no sunlight or the humidity level or just poor outfit choices. So yeah, finally. My inspiration for this outfit is Dua Lipa's IDGAF music video. And yes, it was 50 outside.
The bridge is a historic New York City landmark connecting the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn crossing the East River (well technically it's a waterway not a river, but whatever). It was designed by architect John Roebling following a neo-gothic style and built by engineer couple Washington and Emily Roebling in the mid-1800s. Fast forward to 21st century, little does every New Yorker know that their great grandson, Kristian Roebling, has dedicated most of his time in tours sharing a brief yet insightful history of the bridge, family stories, historic items and photographs. Book a tour at Roebling's Brooklyn Bridge Tour.
