Did You Know?

Did you know that the Brooklyn Bridge has windows?  I had almost forgotten this until I found the photo below while offloading some pictures from my computer. When I briefly lived in Brooklyn, I commuted to my workplace in Manhattan. I took the photo below on one of my drives home (as a passenger). We were on the approach to the bridge. The wall in which the windows reside is part of the structure on which the thoroughfare rests and which continues over the bridge. This is the same roadway that passes under the cathedral-like openings in the towers of the Brooklyn Bridge, that – along with the harp-like suspension cables – have been represented in photographs and paintings for more than a hundred years.
