During the Thanksgiving weekend, there were friends visiting New York who wanted to cross the Brooklyn Bridge. For more information about the Brooklyn Bridge, see the previous post from June 8, 2013
We met at the Brooklyn Bridge Cafe across from the pedestrian entrance for lite meals before our walk.
We headed out with a light mist but the weather did not deter us.
The children enjoyed being together.
Once in Manhattan, we walked past City Hall Park and the Municipal Building to the African Burial Ground National Monument.
The children enjoyed the interactive displays and the ranger led historic discussion of the African Burial Ground. We also watched a film describing how the National Monument came to be.
