One of the stops along our walk was the former location of one of the “Kissing Bridges.” These were bridges that were far enough out of the city that they were considered discreet places for demure couples of steal a kiss. I pointed out the spot where the bridge had once stood–the corner of Canal Street and Broadway. At the request of some walkers, we “crossed” the ghost bridge and–in the midst of the throngs of people out to enjoy a gorgeous Saturday afternoon–several couples did steal kisses, demurely.
