brooklyn bridge 125th anniversary celebration!

today is the start of the city's weekend long celebration of the brooklyn bridge's 125th birthday. party kicks off tonight with music at the foot of, and fireworks over, the top of the bridge.

while i can't attend any of the major events, i did want to start off my day with a walk over the bridge. but for the second time this week, rain forced me to change my plans. however, the revised timetable, a lunchtime walk, turned into a much better adventure. in addition to the walk over the bridge, i continued on to the fulton ferry landing and caught the telectroscope exhibit. then, while having a slice of pizza, i ran into a good friend of mine!

may 24th (saturday) is the actual 125th anniversary.
check out the great slide show of the fireworks posted by the ny times!
