18. Walk the Brooklyn Bridge

Hey, they can't all be tough! Despite living in Connecticut for 8 years, and making frequent trips to NYC, I've never walked to Brooklyn across the bridge. It's one of those incredibly touristy things to do, but I think that made it just about perfect for the 30 for 30 list. One bright but brisk weekend in April, I set out with a friend after brunch to saunter the span. Saunter we did, our way to Brooklyn, and on the way back, I look a little hyperlapse video of part of the journey.

All in all, it certainly made Brooklyn feel much closer than the trains. Something about the continuity of the joinery, perhaps.
