The Brooklyn Bridge is a Brooklyn, New York City landmark that has been featured in movies, television shows, and more. The iconic bridge connecting Lower Manhattan with Brooklyn Heights supports six lanes of vehicles (no trucks) as well as a shared pedestrian & bicycle path on its surface. A beautiful steel superhighway over water.
The Brooklyn Bridge is an example of engineering ingenuity and architectural beauty that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
The Brooklyn Bridge has been a vital link between Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn Heights for centuries. As of 2018, an average 116 000 vehicles drive over this iconic structure each day – 30,000 pedestrians plus 3000 cyclists.
The magnificent Brooklyn Bridge was built to connect Lower Manhattan with Downtown Brooklyn. The bridge has an overall length of 6,016 feet and can be found spanning 1,595 feet between its two towers – one at either end that holds up safety cables for pedestrians on foot or bikes while they cross over towards their destination.
This New York City’s most famous landmark was built between 1867 and 1883 by John A Roebling. It became an international symbol of engineering prowess after being completed to connect two sides that were otherwise separated by a waterway – before then; there was just no way across.
