As much as I love the sight of Brooklyn’s bridges,
on a recent trip to the borough via water taxi I was intrigued by what I noticed a little west of there. From the Manhattan side, I could see these crane-like structures dotting the waterfront. I’m guessing they’re remnants of Brooklyn’s ship-building past, waiting to be called back into service. As we got closer, they reminded me of dinosaurs that might have roamed on this part of the planet jillions of years ago. For a brief moment, I had a vision of those mechanical behemoths guarding Brooklyn’s waterfront against invaders from Manhattan…
I managed to make it through their ranks!
