...and...the balloons are still there! I caught 3 different tourists taking pictures of them. I must say, they looked much better today, against the bright blue cloudless sky than yesterday. They still looked rather sad though.
Today lots happening on the bridge: A bridge worker was patiently scraping gum off the railing. Lots of lost items waiting to be claimed: A scarf was tied to the railing, a fur band was placed on a bench, ...and I found my lost glove! It was wet and mushy, and was in the exact place in DUMBO where these 2 Indian tourist ladies yelled to me asking for directions to get on the bridge yesterday.

I spotted this sad bunch of balloons, more than half were deflated, tragically trapped in the bridge's cables.
Perhaps remnants from a Chinese wedding party on the pier below...
For the rest of my walk to work, I wondered how the hell they were going to remove the offending balloons! I'm going to count the days it will take for them to disappear...stay tuned.

This morning I encountered a people of note. The first one was a guy walking fast and simultaneously reading his newspaper. He almost walked into me.
The second was this foreign couple: the woman was walking with ski poles despite the fact that there was no snow left on the ground.
It was nice to be back on the bridge, it's been a while...
