Manhattan BridgeThe Highlights
The Manhattan Bridge is an important suspension bridge connecting downtown Manhattan at Canal Street with Brooklyn, extending about 1,500 feet across the East River. Constructed about a century ago in 1909, the bridge is considered to have been the first modern suspension bridge in the world. The picture above shows the bridge as seen from Washington Street in Brooklyn, a perspective which has become iconic after being featured prominently in the classic film "Once Upon A Time In America." The Manhattan Bridge offers an impressive sight of engineering and design, especially when seen in tandem with its close-by neighbor the Brooklyn Bridge.
