I do like a bit of epic 19th Century engineering and the Brooklyn Bridge – ±3455 feet* of steel cabling and limestone, granite & concrete masonry spanning the East River between Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan (completed in 1883) – is no exception! It’s an awe-inspiring structure, and walking across it I felt like I was inside a very clever giant’s complex game of cat’s cradle – a little bit disorientating and a lot magical (to see the world through this intricately beautiful grid)…

To give the above details some context here is the bridge, viewed from underneath the Manhattan Bridge, on a moodier, damper day…
