New York Times photos of the events last night. Some beautiful pictures.
The 125th anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge is being marked with a series of celebrations over the holiday weekend. On Thursday nights, there were fireworks.
Building the bridge took 13 years and cost $15 million.
The Brooklyn Bridge lights will be turned on from 9 to 11 p.m. each night through Memorial Day. The celebrations and observances include lectures, dances, performances, a film series presented at the foot of the bridge, information tents, guided tours, and more.
