What a small world! We just moved from Ohio, and not long ago we walked across the "Purple People Bridge" from Cincinnati to Newport, KY.


I grew up in that area, so I've been on that bridge many times, but I had no idea that it was the model for the Brooklyn Bridge. Great photos and information about one of my favorite parts of the world!

Who would have thought that a Midwestern bridge influenced the iconic Brooklyn Bridge! Those are some great shots.


I would love to take a walk down that path and see those murals. There is just something about photographing bridges!


Sarah-I loved the bridges along the Ohio in Cinci and the ability to walk over the river from state to state on several of them. I love taking bridge photos, and being able to walk over them gives me plenty of time and different vantage points for taking photos.

Glennia-The look of the bridge and the date aroused my initial interest...especially because I'm a real bridge fan.

Fly Girl-The back story on this particular bridge turned out to be pretty fascinating.

Jen-The murals were pretty cool, and you can see a bit of the detail on them by clicking on a link to the arts organization in yesterday's story.


My mother-in-law lives in Covington so I've had the chance to visit this really interesting area. I love the restaurants along the waterfront and just being able to meander around the area.


I love bridges' architecture and the fact that they link two places...in this case two states! These are great pics.


Wanderluster-We walked over the bridge and ate breakfast at the Greenup Cafe in Covington. Great little French-style cafe! Same chef as the JeanRo bistro we ate at in Cinci. http://www.midwestguest.com/2008/08/cincinnati-cuisine.html

Maria-It is kind of cool to walk from state to state.
