      BROOKLYN, NY — The Brooklyn Bridge is overwhelmed with pedestrian traffic on Saturday.

      Photos posted to Twitter showed an endless crowd of people trying to walk from end of the bridge to the next.

      The NYPD said it was doing its best to assist with foot traffic but suggested that there were plenty of other things to do in the city.

      In a tweet, the mayor’s office also warned that the bridge is very crowded.

      WTF?

      I feel much better since I gave up hope.

      My first time walking across, I stepped across a line on the pavement, not realizing that it marked the bike lane.  The biker coming up behind me corrected my error by cursing at me in New York style as he nearly ran me down.  Lesson learned!

      please come flying.
      In a cloud of fiery pale chemicals,
      please come flying,
      to the rapid rolling of thousands of small blue drums
      descending out of the mackerel sky
      over the glittering grandstand of harbor-water,
      please come flying…

      For whom the grim museums will behave
      like courteous male bower-birds,
      for whom the agreeable lions lie in wait
      on the steps of the Public Library,
      eager to rise and follow through the doors
      up into the reading rooms,
      please come flying…

      Come like a light in the white mackerel sky,
      come like a daytime comet
      with a long unnebulous train of words,
      from Brooklyn, over the Brooklyn Bridge, on this fine morning,
      please come flying.

        Folks kept showing up and proceeding into a situation that was becoming unsafe.  All it would have taken was some chucklehead to yell (or think someone else yelled) HE’S GOT A GUN! with resulting stampede, injuries and deaths.  Plus, what if someone had a medical emergency in the midst of that mob?

        I feel much better since I gave up hope.
