Man Jumps from Brooklyn Bridge, Survives

1950510310_3189781788

Last night an unidentified man survived a suicide plunge from the Brooklyn Bridge after threatening police officers who were trying to talk him down. The 38-year-old man was approached by cops around 10:30 p.m as he clung to a girder about 35 feet away from the tower on the Brooklyn side. After waving a knife at them, he plunged to the East River, at least 120 feet below. Rescuers pulled him from the waters and rushed him to Lutheran Hospital, where his condition is not known

Did you know that 55 people try to jump off the brooklyn bridge each year. 35% do it most because of broken harts.

The city lost one its quintessential characters Sunday when the enigmatic Joe Ades died after decades spent selling his $5 vegetable peelers at the Union Square Greenmarket, and other locations around town. 

This makes me sad.

Do you ever wonder what people are thinking about when you pass them on the street? Katie made a bunch of thought bubbles out of paper and hung them around Brooklyn. She waited for people to walk by the bubbles and when they did, She took a picture.  This is Brilliant.
