News at Eleven: Actor Bill Murray joined prominent poets who read

poetry on the Manhattan side of the bridge, then mid-span and again at the Fulton Ferry Landing, where Galway Kinnell, with wind-swept hair, awed the crowd with "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" by Walt Whitman.

"This is one of Whitman's most self-revealing poems," he said, with the lower Manhattan skyline behind him.

Mr. Murray, who closed the evening by reading poetry by Wallace Stevens, has been supporting Poets House for many years.
