The Carroll Street Bridge over the Gowanus Canal


This delicate, elegant structure, filagreed and painted like its big cousin the Williamsburg bridge, lends a kind of Venetian glamour to the act of crossing the Gowanus. It is a constant reminder to New Yorkers that while Manhattan is an island, the rest of the boroughs are also criscrossed with waterways, some forgotten, some hidden, some maligned.

My now-husband proposed to me on this bridge. It will forever have a little spot in my heart.
