We've said it before and we'll say it again...it seems like you never know where Priceline will send you. Favorable reviews, free parking and a continental breakfast put us in a new hotel in Brooklyn on this visit. Further out from the City (and in a not so great neighborhood) it's probably one we won't be going back to. Do we really have to explain why?

The Bridge is an amazing sight! As one of the oldest suspension bridges in the US, it's 1,595.5 feet long and is a National Historic Landmark.
The tour guides recommended walking from Brooklyn to Manhattan to get the best view of the city skyline...and they were right.
We just had one small complaint from our walking trip...holy cow y'all...the wind on that bridge was something fierce! New York meteorologists missed the mark and the temperatures were about 20 degrees colder than what we were anticipating. We were so frozen by the time we crossed into Manhattan! In fact, Heather's hands weren't thawed out enough to use the chopsticks at our Chinatown restaurant during lunch.
But despite the numb fingers, she did manage to snap this Kodak moment on the bridge...after all, it's not everyday that Big Bird has a yard sale.
