At the Foot of the Manhattan Bridge

No Trespassing, NYC
Photo by myself at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge.

The ornament looks somber and funereal to me - the details are very spare. What looks like a door isn't a door at all.

Perhaps the giant concrete supports reminded the designer of ancient tombs and pyramids?

j'aime bien prendre le Manhattan Bridge a pied, on a une superbe vue sur le Brooklyn Bridge.
Pour mes vacances a NYC, normalement fin Octobre et début novembre, j'aurais confirmation dans la semaine.

Hi Olivier!
Ah, October/November is often a good time to visit. I remember you visited last year in December.
You must be excited!

This is quite surreal to me, like something out of one of my weird dreams!

Hi Kitty! I love that angle shot. I am afraid of heights though. That would be hard for me to look at.
