TAKE IT TO THE BRIDGE
The Brooklyn Bridge is a symbol of optimism, engineering ingenuity, and . . . gullibility. And have we got a bargain for you! To honor the old gal’s 125th, a number of festivals and celebrations are happening around town, and we’d like to mention a couple. BAM is sponsoring a free screening of Ken Burns’s 1981 documentary, Brooklyn Bridge—the tickets are first-come, first-served, so get ’em while they’re hot! Also, for you more active types, NYC Discovery Walking Tours is hosting a stroll along its length—with a history lesson attached—through Brooklyn Heights and Plymouth Church, and eventually ending at the Promenade. Walking tour at 2 and 5, and Sunday at 2.
