The News
Five pedestrians were hurt when several huge chunks of a stone ­facade fell off the Brooklyn Bridge in a freak accident yesterday night
The unlucky five pedestrians struck by the decorative stones had been walking along the underpass, they were taken to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan for treatment of minor ­injuries, but the structure of the bridge was not affected, the FDNY said

The Photo
While reading the news I remember how I enjoy crossing it, also remember a day when at the beginning of the Bridge ( Manhattan Side) I met some people working in it,, noticing my shots one of them said ”Time to rest and eat”
I imagine them working hard to fix the falling stones, may be one of them, who knows?

The Bridge
One of my favorites along with the Pont des Arts at Paris, both full of life with people enjoying crossing them on foot or bikes
Both with plenty of space to walk and also offering benches to rest, seat while enjoying the ambiance and beautiful views
