I thought Times Square was crazy busy, but after walking on the Brooklyn Bridge (for the first time) I realized that it is a whole other beast. There are two lanes specifically designated for pedestrians and bicyclists. If a pedestrian walks on the wrong lane, bicyclists will not hesitate to yell at them to GET OFF THE LANE! They also have no shame in running pedestrians over. I am proud to say I survived walking across the bridge without a scratch. After making our way into the heart of Brooklyn, the group and I went to Jane’s Carousel to establish a main meeting point. The students were able to walk around in smaller groups as long as they came back to the meeting point by a certain time. I enjoyed eating lots and lots of food and snacks. I also found this adorable bookstore with used and collectible books. I hope to go back soon. I could spend a whole day in Brooklyn and it still wouldn’t be enough to take it all in.
