The Brooklyn Bridge | New York City

The-Brooklyn-BridgeThe famous Brooklyn Bridge was a must-see for me while in New York last weekend!

Nic actually had to pull me out of a biker’s way a few times! I’m actually living on the edge for a second and standing in the biker’s lane for the above picture! It was crazy!

Nonetheless, I can’t believe The Brooklyn Bridge was built in 1883! At the time it was built, it was the largest suspension bridge in the world. It is truly an amazing work of American architecture!

  • I love the Brooklyn Bridge, but it is a bit stressful to walk. 🙂 We did it once, and are glad we did, but that was probably enough. lol Dumbo is the best! Pizza and Ice cream!

    Also….Roebling, who built the bridge, built a prototype in Ohio. The Roebling Suspension bridge in Cincinnati is a sister to the Brooklyn Bridge. No wonder it’s such a beautiful bridge!

    Love the pics.

    • Lauren,

      Thank you for this info! I thought I had heard there was a tie between the Brooklyn Bridge and Ohio but wasn’t sure what it was!

      And yes, I agree… once was enough! 🙂
