Brooklyn Bridge

Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest and longest bridges in the United States; it stretches over the East River and connects Manhattan and Brooklyn. The construction of this bridge lasted from 1869 to 1883 and was the first suspension bridge built with steel wires.Brooklyn Bridge is 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m) in length, and until 1890 was the longest suspension bridge in the world.

The designer of this monumental bridge was John Augustus Roebling who did not live long enough to attend the opening of the bridge. Today, the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the world’s most beautiful bridges and one of the largest engineering endeavors of the 19th century.

It is definitely one of the most popular sights of New York City. Quite a few Indian movies have been shot here. A walk across the bridge is a must do activity.
