Bridges over the East River

The East River is a tidal straight in New York City that separates Brooklyn from the island of Manhattan. A friend suggested visiting the Skipper’s Pierside Cafe down by Pier 15 on the north (Manhattan) side of the river. Unfortunately not only was the cafe closed for referbishment but the security guard on duty wouldn’t let me shoot from the deck in front of the cafe. Fortunately just a bit further back from the Brooklyn Bridge is the Pier 15. The above photograph was taken from the end of Pier 15 looking east. Behind the Brooklyn Bridge is the Manhattan Bridge and in the far distance is the Williamsburg Bridge
