over the williamsburg bridge.

rosarito fish shack williamsburg

i know, i know, the brooklyn bridge is a bit more iconic, but ol' williamsburg bridge has some character. after lunch at smorgasburg last weekend, we decided to keep meandering around brooklyn until finally heading back to manhattan over the WB. did you know you can remember the order of the downtown bridges by the acronym BMW? Brooklyn bridge, Manhattan bridge, Williamsburg bridge. hey, now you know.

i later realized that the bridge has a separate entrance for pedestrians entering from brooklyn, of which we were completely clueless as it's a different entrance a few blocks away. i know how frustrating that is to bikers because i curse under my breath when pedestrians do the same to me. live it, learn it.

i was half hoping to find a biker in the background of these photos flipping me off.

graffiti sort of just summarizes brooklyn. or maybe williamsburg at least.

the end of the bridge dumps you somewhere on the lower east side of manhattan and within walking distance to soho. we decided on sandwiches for dinner from il cantuccio (the BEST focaccia) which extended our hike further west into the village. an order of prosciutto and caprese paninis for the road and a well-deserved cab ride home.

What a lovely day! I have walked the BB so many times, but have never crossed on the Williamsburg Bridge before. Your photos make me want to as soon as possible! I can't wait to return to the smorgasburg this spring- I love those homemade s'mores!

I hope you have a lovely week!

I am a little obsessed with your outfit, the jacket, jeans, shoes combo is perfect.

Also, that sounds like the best day (re: delicious food and wandering around the city). Happy Monday.

I walked the Williamsburg Bridge a few times a week when I lived in Williamsburg. I loved looking at the graffiti on the sides of buildings (so high up!) when I walked past.

Ha, a background bird-flipper would have been priceless! Sounds like a fun day.

this is shameful but I've never been to Williamsburg except to eat at Peter Luger's.
