Tuesday Tales August 28th, 2012, Prompt Bridge.


Brooklyn Bridge New York

I grew up with a book called the Spider of Brooklyn Heights, the neighborhood in Brooklyn I was raised in.

   

 

        

 

I walked over the bridge many times under many circumstances.  I will give you an example of two.

Between high school graduation and college I went on an overnight tour of the Lower  East Side that ended with a dawn walk over the bridge back to Brooklyn.

The picture is from Franny Wentzel’s blog of old New York pictures.

 

The second was walking with my friend Bonnie, over a jammed Brooklyn Bridge in 1980, during the Transit Strike.

 

Walking across the bridge on a nice day was always a treat.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
