BB125

In honor of the Brooklyn Bridge's 125th anniversary, there's a captivating light show going on each night until Monday (Memorial Day) from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Of course, this structure has a timeless beauty even without any artificial light, but the lighting scheme adds an exciting element to evening viewing. We had a front-row seat to the lights last night as we watched some old silent films of New York and then Disney's Enchanted in Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park, wedged dramatically between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. The movie is cute, and filled with great New York moments, but I have to say the simple power of the bridge lighting was just as interesting.
