Brooklyn Bridge:
Completed in 1883, this is the first suspension bridge to use steel cables. There is a pedestrian walkway from which you can go from Manhattan towards Brooklyn and see the NYC skyline from the east side.

A good place to take a picture of the bridge is from outside the food court of the South Street Seaport shopping complex (Fulton St & the East River; 212-SEAPORT)

Address: Spanning the East River.
Directions: Centre St between Chambers St and City Hall
Phone: (212) NEW-YORK
