The Brooklyn Bridge is a symbol of optimism, engineering ingenuity, and . . . gullibility. And have we got a bargain for you! To honor the old galâs 125th, a number of festivals and celebrations are happening around town, and weâd like to mention a couple. BAM is sponsoring a free screening of Ken Burnsâs 1981 documentary, Brooklyn Bridgeâthe tickets are first-come, first-served, so get âem while theyâre hot! Also, for you more active types, NYC Discovery Walking Tours is hosting a stroll along its lengthâwith a history lesson attachedâthrough Brooklyn Heights and Plymouth Church, and eventually ending at the Promenade.
Walking tour at 2 and 5, and Sunday at 2. Sat., May 24, 4:30 p.m., 2008
