About the Brooklyn Bridge:
This enduring, historic monument is the southernmost of New York's East River bridge crossings. With its Neo-Gothic towers, you can't miss it -- and neither have many artists over the years who have been inspired by its majesty, including Frank Lloyd Wright, Georgia O'Keefe and Walt Whitman.
Carefully cross the traffic pattern at either end of the bridge and make it to the pedestrian walkway, which is a boardwalk like no other. The planks that pattern the path lead you over the river and a memorable journey. Bring your camera because the views are stunning.
Brooklyn Bridge Fact
Construction of the bridge began in 1870 and took over 13 years to build, and was, at the time, the longest suspension bridge in the world.
