Brooklyn Bridge Forbidden Locks

Brooklyn Bridge Forbidden Locks pictures I took during one of my NYC Moments walks across the Brooklyn Bridge. Have you ever walked over this bridge? The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most popular bridges in the world. Walk over while drinking your favorite specialty coffee or tea.

Well, you may have heard that people have been attaching padlocks to the Brooklyn Bridge as a symbol of their love for years now. But did you know that these locks have actually been causing damage to the bridge?

That’s why the locks have been banned since 2016, and why they are now known as “forbidden locks.” The weight of the locks can cause the bridge’s cables to stretch, which can weaken the entire structure. And with over 10,000 locks at one point, you can imagine how much strain that would put on the bridge!

It’s a shame that something meant to be a symbol of love has caused harm to such an iconic structure. But the good news is that there are plenty of other ways to show your love and appreciation for the Brooklyn Bridge – like taking a romantic walk across it at sunset, or simply admiring its beautiful architecture from afar.

I remember feeling a bit self-conscious the first time I donned a mask in public, but as I saw more and more people wearing them, it became…
