This is my 1st photo of the Brooklyn Bridge. You can see the photo of this bridge from another point of view.
Today the mass media said about the crach of the part of this famous bridge.
"A section of a stone facade inside a Brooklyn Bridge underpass collapsed late on Wednesday evening, injuring five people, a New York City fire official said.
The roughly 7.6-metre section of stonework toppled before 8 p.m., New York City Fire Department spokesman Jim Long said.
"There is nothing structurally wrong with the bridge," Long said, adding that the people who were injured were not hit with the heavier chunks of falling debris.
The cause was being investigated." CBS.CA

It seems there are dangers everywhere, even on Brooklyn Bridge. There is a tough competition for attention between the colorful people in the foreground and the chain of skyscrapers at the back. I find both features very attractive. This is a great shot entirely to my taste.

Great shot! I really like the combination of colorful people in the foreground, and skyscrapers in the distance. Then we have the famous arches of the bridge in between. I can see the new World Trade Center, and the new Gehry building. The sharpness and lighting are also very nice.
About the collapsed pieces of the bridge, we had bad storms here last night, so maybe that made some pieces fall off - or maybe it was just very old. :-) Either way, I heard that it wasn't too serious, just some bricks on the facade. Thankfully nobody was badly hurt.

il luogo è sicuramente uno dei più conosciuti al mondo, ma la tua interpretazione è molto bella e originale.
Le tante persone e i loro colori i primo piano, contrastano magnificamente con il panorama sullo sfondo, il luogo è ben riconoscibile, ma il tuo scatto lo valorizza con un occhio diverso.

Maria (Nikkitta) also posted a picture of the bridge, explaining the incident yesterday. This must have made the news everywhere but here...had it not been for these pictures on TE, I wouldn't have known anything about it!?
I have similar pictures, but the skyline has changed quite a bit since mine were taken. :) A classic view alright, and the inclusion of the people and their colored attire really makes it come alive. Such a fun walk over the bridge, isn't it? After seeing it in so many movies and t.v. shows, it makes you feel like part of city.
Sharp, well balanced and a view to admire. Nicely done! Enjoy the new day. Take it easy bud.
Cheers from the Stars and Stripes,

Hi Serghei,who would think that going on the Brooklyn Bridge can be dangerous. Fortunately, the five pedestrians were not so severely injured. Strange news indeed. 7 m section it is a big piece of stone. Splendid view of the lucky pedestrians, not conscious what could happen (except that they will loose feet :)). Nice view of the Gehry building and is it the new World trade Center on the left? Fantastic shot taken from your archive for the occasion.

i recognize some of the buildings in the bg, this photo brings back some very fond memories.
its almost impossible to get a photo here without people in the way :) but here the people add to the scene in a positive way.
glad to hear nobody is seriously hurt.
see you around

We missing the feets of the walkers, but we get the bridge completely and the details, also in your second picture.
Nice depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity make your picture attractive.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

J'aime beaucoup l'animation à l'avant plan avec cette foule colorée qui se dirige dans des directions opposées avec les formes du pont mythique en point de mire et le skyline au loin. Très bien fait.

Well it seems that from s distant corners of the world we knew about USA news more that the Americans, good for us !
Like the back with at left the new WTC or so I suppose
Thanks a lot for the very good photos, do you have some with people? It will be great to see them
Well done, regards
Is Jason going over there?
Just read something that made me believe it

This is the second photo of the Brooklyn Bridge I have seen in response to the news item you mention in your note. I bet you the authorities will dish out more money in the lawsuits forthcoming than they would if they plain repaired the bridge.
BTW, very nice DOF, I am enjoying the truncated skyline of NYC in the background.
