Day Nine - Canal Street, Brooklyn

First stop was down to 42nd street, then the Q train to Canal Street.

A guy called Casey Neistat has his office/creative space down there and he has a staggering 11,000,000 subscribers on YouTube. Then - unsurprisingly - a coffee. The coffee gets 8/10. You can read more about their work at www.thinkcoffee.com.

Onwards up Canal Street towards the bridge.

I had a nice chat to this cop. Having dealt with politics he said; “You should never discuss two topics. Politics and religion.” So, I asked him about religion. Obviously. He carries a picture of Jesus around.

He said there were more churches in Brooklyn than anywhere else. I’ve not fact-checked that.

En-route to the bridge we came across a Catholic church. They do like their kitsch. They’re the Coney Island of religions.

The length of the Brooklyn Bridge was walked. The photo below is five different exposures so could remove the traffic (if you’re interested).

Into Brooklyn and first things first. A hotdog. A big sloppy, delicious mess of a thing.

Once into Brooklyn we looked for the famous road that points directly to Manhattan bridge.

We ended the day at the Flatiron Building. I went to do a long exposure but didn’t have my tripod so this was my attempt by balancing it on something.
