Last night I “occupied” the Brooklyn Bridge. Not really, but I did walk over it! Occupy Wall Street had organized a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge last night to mark its 2-month birthday. I’m not a big fan of the movement and while I can understand many of their grievances and frustrations, I see too many flaws in their expression and manner. But … I always wanted to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.
The whole thing was pretty tame. It was pretty busy on the Manhattan side, but the bridge itself wasn’t too crowded. Unfortunately my camera is really bad at taking pictures when it’s dark out so pretty much everything came out blurry. They projected some images onto the Verizon Building, which was actually pretty cool. That’s what the below picture is of (if you can make it out). It says Happy B-Day #OCCUPY.
