I was in New York over the weekend, and walked over the Brooklyn Bridge, which I had never done before, despite having grown up in Manhattan. In college, I wrote a History of Science paper about Roebling and the bridge, so I have long been interested in it. My brother Patrick (the photographer who specializes in New York architecture) came with us, and we had a good time on the Bridge, and then in SoHo.
Patrick told us how they are considering letting pedestrians up to the top of the towers, and we couldn’t quite figure out how they’d manage that. Then Charles Miller happened to describe his family outing to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, so I guess it’s possible. If they set it up in New York, I’m so there.
