[United States holiday] A day trip to Brooklyn, NY

New York City is composed of five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island.

I started my day at the Brooklyn Bridge, and it was simple to get there. Just take the A or C trains from Pennsylvania Station to Fulton Street Station, and the Brooklyn Bridge is just walking distance away from the station.

Brooklyn Bridge is accessible 24 hours a day, and it is a sight behold, beautiful to view at any time of day, but it is gorgeous at sunset. It was very cold and chilly up on the bridge and I regretted wearing too little. Do remember to wear a thicker sweater or at least bring a proper coldwear sweater/jacket with you, especially during winter, fall and even spring.

There was a large collection of 'love locks' as couples left their padlocks on the bridge and throw their keys into the river to show their everlasting love. Do bring a lock with you if you are heading to Brooklyn Bridge with your loved ones.
