Across the East River in NYC from south to north there are three iconic bridges. These are the Brooklyn, the Manhattan and the Williamsburg bridges.
Visitors who took a bus tour were told that locals refer to the trio as the BMW. Mr. Thipu and I have lived in the area all our lives and in NYC for about 40 years. We have never heard the bridges referred to in this way.
However, because the first is so elegant and the second is so gawky, the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges have been called, 'Beauty and the Beast'. [/img]
