The Cheapest Way to See London Ever…
If you’re looking to see London on the cheap, look no further than the Brooklyn Bridge (above). Now through June 15, Paul St. George’s 37-foot-long (11-meter) Telectroscope allows curious New Yorkers and Londoners to see each other across the pond. Legend has it, a long tunnel stretches from North America to the U.K., allowing onlookers to see from one end to the other via an “extraordinary optical device.” And while that’s pretty cool, the Telectroscope works in a more realistic manner—via camouflaged cameras in both “ends” of the scope in London and New York. Even if you can’t head to either town to see it, be sure to check out CNN’s video. To get to New York’s Telectroscope, take subway lines A and C to High Street or F to York Street. In London, go to the south side of the Thames near Tower Bridge. Both Telectroscopes are open 24 hours a day, and while it costs one pound in London to take a peek, the view from New York is free.
