If you've ever wanted to walk across a bouncy bridge and rest assure it's perfectly safe, here's your chance.
Squibb Park Bridge recently opened as a much-needed (and scenic!) pedestrian link between the Brooklyn Heights and Brooklyn Bridge Park. Whereas before you had walk a steep hill down Columbia Heights,. then dodge traffic across the BQE before finally reaching the park, now you can access it via a 400-foot long zig zagging bridge, just a few steps from the northern end of Brooklyn Heights Promenade
And it's a pretty fun bridge too. First, there's the bouncy effect, the result of some impressive engineering. And then there are the fantastic 360 degree views: Manhattan, Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn Bridge, and the park below. So set aside a couple hours and make a relaxing trip of it. Just be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and maybe some snacks, as it'll be difficult to resist lounging on the grass afterwards.
