"BROOKLYN BRIDGE" Brooklyn Bridge Tip by Maggies
Brooklyn Bridge, New York City: 191 reviews and 340 photos
Completed in 1883, it was the largest suspension bridge and the first to be constructed of steel. The bridge took 16 years to build, required 600 workers and claimed 20 lives. Two Gothic double arches one in Brooklyn, the other one in Manhattan were built in 1875 and were meant to be the portals of the cities.
From the pedestrian walkway there are great views of Manhattan and the bridge itself.
If you look at the pics you'll see Brooklyn Bridge covered in black smoke. It did look scary and I still don't know what happened then.
