A new bridge.

Two and a half years ago, when my kids were still in 5th grade, I bumped into a bunch of kids on a school trip.  It turned out that it was a 6th grade class trip that my kids did take when they changed schools and became   Click here for a blog post about the trip I took last year.

Yesterday in a run I ran into a class trip that my kids took last year.  Really.  I was running down Court St and there were a bunch of 6th graders conducting surveys in front of a Starbucks.  Another bunch behind behind Borough Hall.  I know it throws off the results but I took the survey 4 or 5 times.

It really didn't bother me to stop my run for 5 or 10 minutes.  My goal was to do a little sightseeing.  I wanted to see the newest bridge in NYC.  The Squib Park Bridge

When you walk onto the bridge you read this sign

I read it, but forgot it.  Till I stepped onto the bridge.

Serious bounce.  I can't wait to take my kids there.







It does not look bouncy





But from the underside you can see that it is seriously springy



























and Brooklyn Bridge Park now has a third bridge, besides the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
