Park Down Under the Brooklyn Bridge

One of the wonderful things about living in NYC is that you never run out of things to see. On Thursday I went to a small park near the Brooklyn bridge where they were screening Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. I think the concept of the activity is much cooler than the reality of sitting around and waiting for hours on the cold hard ground, surrounded by swarms of people! The highlight of the event was the amazing view - the viewing area consisted of a stretch of land sandwiched between two big bridges (Brooklyn and Manhattan bridge I think), in perfect view of downtown Manhattan - so pretty!

Note that the night view showcases the waterfall installation that the tourism bureau is hyping up. There is divided opinion on whether they are paragons of beauty, or plain eyesores...
