(July 14) I decided to walk to Williamsburg over the bridge, at sunset.

delancey st.
I decided to start in Manhattan, so I took the subway to Delancey.

toward the williamsburg bridge
It puts you about a block from the bridge walkway.

the esb
A common sight on this site.

surrounding neighborhood
One of my favorite things about walking the bridges is the view of the neighborhoods.

across the river, toward billyburg
The view of Brooklyn in the distance.

the cage of boo!
Unfortunately, much of the view is defaced by this chicken coop.

spiral staircase
I wouldn’t mind taking photos from that staircase.

The blimp was out filming the golf tournament that was clogging my trains with obnoxious drunk fratboys and former fratboys.
(That spot annoys the shit out of me, yet I’m not going to fix it.)

trumpet vine
I grew up with these all around.

These were in a garden approaching Atlantic Ave. & Flatbush Ave. I had to look twice to believe what I was seeing.

hanging out
The gardens on Carroll St. in Carroll Gardens really do remind me of suburbia.

now playing.... church ave for a limited multi-year engagement
Typical of MTA construction, it’s going to take so long to complete, they changed all the permanent signage on the whole line.

peeling ceiling
This however, is not part of what they’re going to be fixing.
