Another fabulous symbol of New York is the Brooklyn Bridge.

This suspension bridge, that joins lower Manhattan to Brooklyn, was built between 1869 and 1883.

It was the first suspension bridge to use steel for its cable wire, and at the time it was built it was the longest suspension bridge in the world.

Just look at how fabulous this bridge is!

One of the highlights of my visit to New York was walking across the bridge to Brooklyn and back again. Great views of Manhattan, and numerous photo opportunities!
