The Brooklyn Bridge

Location: Brooklyn Bridge, New York, NY 10038

The Brooklyn Bridge has become an integral part of the iconic Manhattan Skyline. Completed in 1883, the bridge is one of the oldest bridges in the United States and the first Steel-Wire suspension bridge in the world, making it an important historical attraction. The bridge connects downtown Manhattan with Brooklyn by extending about 1,600 feet across the East River. Over 125,000 cars cross the Brooklyn Bridge each day, making it a pivotal lifeline into downtown Manhattan. The sight of the bridge becomes even more impressive when viewed in tandem with its close-by neighbor, the Manhattan Bridge.
