I really liked walking across this icon of New York. It made me feel like being in a movie and the hike itself was one of the best ways to see a bit of the different parts of the city of New York. I tried to capture a little bit of the historic feeling in this image.
Finished in 1883, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world, being 1825m long (5989ft). It connects Manhattan with Brooklyn, both places with a strong Dutch history (New York was New Amsterdam first, and Brooklyn is named after Dutch town Breukelen, just like Harlem is named after Dutch city Haarlem)
