Looking @the skyline of a city that never sleeps
Our youngest daughter
used to live in Brooklyn NY, so I
painted this one for her.
Now she lives in Hell's Kitchen, which sounds worse than it is, because this area of Manhattan is fast becoming a desirable location on the west side of New York.
--ABOUT THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE--
It is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States, stretches 5,989 feet (1825 m) over the East River, connecting the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Construction began in January 3, 1870.
The Brooklyn Bridge was completed thirteen years later.
Contemporaries marveled at what technology was capable of and the bridge became a symbol of the optimism of the time
The bridge is used for many television series and film as well.
This mahogany FRAME with metal
corners suits this painting, since the
corners reminded me of the bridge!
