Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge at Night

Brooklyn Bridge at Night

In our quest to uncover photo opportunities on our home turf before journeying to Europe next week, Tineey and I decided to take a night stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge into Dumbo. I’ve lived and worked in New York City for four years yet this was my first time walking the Brooklyn Bridge – maybe my third time in Brooklyn ever even (I obviously didn’t get out much). After making it a priority to get out of this work – drink – sleep cycle, I knew that this spot, as cliche as it is, was a must-see, must-photograph destination. No big deal to most native New Yorkers, but there’s a serenity here (especially in the evening) that makes it that much more special.

Walk down past the steps at the end of the bridge once you cross into Brooklyn and take a quick left. You’ll find a charming neighborhood called Dumbo. There’s a street down here where you can see the Empire State Building peek through the Manhattan bridge, aligning perfectly in the middle. You’ve probably seen this shot hundreds of times on Instagram.

Keep walking for a few minutes and you’ll come across the Brooklyn Bridge Park – a sweet little spot perfect for photographs of lower Manhattan. But how does the view compare to that of Jersey City? Compare them here.


How amazing is this night view? Take a few minutes, soak it in, then make the trek out. If you don’t feel like walking back across the bridge, the you can hop on the F train nearby to get back into Manhattan.

Don't ask me where I'm from. Ask me where I'm going.

You are not a failure because you've failed. You are only a failure if you do not try at all. Don't let a few failures convince you to doubt yourself and your abilities. Have faith in fate - trust in timing - believe that everything happens for a reason.

Because this is not the end - only the beginning of something much more beautiful.

There are moments when all I want to do is quit. Don't run away from those moments - invite them to break you, shape you and mold you into the powerful, passionate creature you'll become. Because I know it feels like everything is crashing down on you, but you'll wake up one day and realize that everything is going to be okay.

Where are you from?
Death is merely a moment. Your legacy is forever. My father saved my life, and he wasn't even physically here when he did it. Don't ever give up on your idea of happiness, your dreams, yourself. You're not alone - I promise you this.

Thank you to the wonderful people behind the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad for sharing my father's story.

With love, Jinna. ??
Look for the dream that keeps coming back. It is your destiny. And when you realize this, do not be afraid. Do not hesitate. This is your calling. You were born to do this.

It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do.

You are living a life full of miracles. Perspective is everything. ??
Hardships only prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. Always keep your head up.

I just want the sun to set forever.
