We started the day by heading to the tour through the city. Once we survived the peak hour and made it to the Pier 17, we got aboard the Zephyr. The tour included a trip by the East River and around the Statue of Liberty. But before that, we made a small round upstream, under the icon of the East River, the Brooklyn Bridge. As we floated under the bridge I couldn't help thinking how long the bridge had served as a passage between the busy boroughs on Manhattan and Brooklyn. 129 years it has stood in the middle of the pulsating metropolis by connecting people and their lives. No doubt it will be filling its place in the future as well.
