South Street and the Brooklyn Bridge

I went bicycle riding in Manhattan.  I rented a bicycle from Pedal Pushers Bicycle Shop on 2nd Avenue at 69th Street, rode west through Central Park, exited at 72nd Street, went to Hudson River Park, headed downtown to South Street, rode across the Brooklyn Bridge, then went Uptown along the East Side by riding along the East River and on city streets to return the bicycle.

Je suis allé faire du vélo à Manhattan. J’ai loué un vélo à Pedal Pushers Bicycle Shop sur la 2me Avenue à 69th rue, est monté à l’ouest à travers Central Park, sorti à la 72me rue, est allé à Hudson River Park, pédalé sud vers Downtown à South Street, est monté sur le Brooklyn Bridge, ensuite allé Uptown sur le côté est lelong de la Rivière Est et dans les rues de la ville pour rendre le vélo.

On Pier 17 the South Street Seaport was razed and is being rebuilt.

Sur le Quai 17 le South Street Seaport a été rasé et se reconstruit.
