Williamsburg Bridge is the lesser known bridge brother. Brooklyn usually gets the lead role but we were staying on the Lower East Side on Delancey so it was just a short stroll to cross the East River, complete with NYPD car parked in the middle, to the trendy Williamsburgh neighbourhood in Brooklyn. It really is lovely bridge partly because of its big, industrial, comforting, red awkwardness and partly because of the interesting pedestrian traffic crossing over on a warm summers day. A chilled Saturday afternoon ensued wandering along Bedford Avenue with a G&T at the Five Leaves, the bar co-founded by Heath Ledger.
