Brooklyn Bridge, so hot right now
Riding over the Brooklyn Bridge last night, I had to stop, about halfway across with dozens of other cyclists and even more pedestrians. Why?
Because Disney was filming a commercial.
We had to stop and wait (and were asked not to yell) while some jackass dressed as a Disney prince pranced around the center of the bridge and exploited my daily commute.
I suspect that City Hall/DOT wouldn't have allowed Disney to close any of the East River vehicle crossings at 5:30 pm. Both organizations seem to be okay with closing the pedestrian path during the busiest time of the day for a couple of bucks though.
