START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY – WALKING ON THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE

You  and  your  cousins  are  on your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New  York  City .

The  three  of  you  are  going  to  do  something  you  haven’t  done  yet .

You’ve  been  avoiding  it.

But today ,  you’re  going  to  get  it over  with .

You aren’t  only  going  to  see the  Brooklyn  Bridge  close  up or just  stand  on it.

Nope ,  today  the three  of  you  are  going  to  really  be  brave  and  walk  on it .

Or at least  part  of  it.

The three  of  you  have  crossed  the  street  and  are now  going  up the  walk way that  leads up to   the  Brooklyn  Bridge .

You  are all surprised  as you are walking  to see the  bridge  not only  full of  cars and  bikes , but there  seems  to  be  a  lot of  tourists  and  other  New Yorkers  jogging  or walking  on the  bridge .

People  from Brooklyn  coming  into  the

city  for work, seemed  to  use this  bridge  a lot and not take  their  cars or public  transportation .

You all  try to  count  the  number  of  people  in work clothes  walking  on this  bridge .

New York  City  Hall is right  across  the  street  from the  Brooklyn  Bridge ,  so you imagine  that’s  where a lot of  these people  are going  to .

You  wonder  why  it took  you so long to  walk  on this  bridge ,  because  the  view of   not only  this bridge ,  but the  Manhattan  Bridge  next to  it ,  is really  breathtaking .

But the  three of  you  aren’t  going  to  go crazy  and walk  all the  way  to  the other  side .

This  is  as far  as  you’re  going  to  go, but technically ,  you are in Brooklyn ,  just not at the other  end of  the bridge, which is  Brooklyn  Bridge  Park.

The three  of  you  walk  back into  Manhattan ,  but first   you have  to  take  a  picture  to show  the  folks  back home  that the three  of  you  were actually  on the  Brooklyn  Bridge .

One  of  your  cousins  points  to  a  sign  that’s  on the  highway   just as you get off the  bridge .

“WELCOME  TO  MANHATTAN  “.

You all  did  it.

The three  of  you  actually  walked  on the Brooklyn  Bridge  from Manhattan  to Brooklyn  and back- sort  of .
