The Verrazano

The Verrazano Bridge connects Brooklyn and Staten Island.  It crosses the Narrows and is named for the first known European navigator to enter the New York Harbor {source: Wikipedia}.  In 1964, when it was completed, the Verrazano Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world.

Tonight we took a trip to the walking path that runs under the Verrazano, and along the eastern shore of Brooklyn.  I needed a sunset picture for my April Photo A Day Challenge.  It was a bit more cloudy/hazy than I would have liked, but it was a perfect night to be walking.  And I still ended up with a couple of good pictures.
