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.

Ask me anything ... Go!
How vain is to sit down and write when you have not stood up to live?
And in these moments, I hope that you'll remember the way you made me feel - imperfectly beautiful.

You will only get somewhere you've never been if you do something you've never done.

Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?

Do you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?

This is one of the most amazing cities I've ever visited - endless style, ridiculously clean and filled with beautiful people inside and out.
