Brooklyn Bridge

After our quick tour of Coney Island, we took the F train to York Street, the last stop in Brooklyn before Manhattan and walked over to the Brooklyn Bridge.

Une fois notre petit tour à Coney Island terminé, nous avons pris le train F jusqu'à York Street, le dernier arrêt avant Manhattan pour traverser le pont de Brooklyn.

A little bit of info about the New York Bridges history can be found here.
