Then south to Borough Hall, where I joined a walking group. We headed west into Brooklyn Heights to look out over the East River.
The charms of the area include a plexiglass water tower and the general architecture.
We headed down to the greenway along the river, where there are lawns, beaches, sports fields and courts, and a view of the Manhattan skyline.
Walt Whitman's poem, "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," is strung about on the railing.
Eventually we headed back inland to climb to the pedestrian path on the Manhattan Bridge. N and Q trains clattered past us on our right, and on our left were some amazing views. This next photo I took through a gap in the chainlink fence that runs along the path.
This billboard caught my eye too:
On the Manhattan side, we walked through Chinatown, Little Italy, and Soho, and ended up in Washington Square Park.
From Little Italy:
There's also a famous Italian (Garibaldi) in Washington Square Park.
I love how the trees have been blossoming, especially the magnolia trees.
