Brooklyn Bridge, span over the East River, New York City, between the boroughs
of Brooklyn and Manhattan.
bridge was designed by the American engineer John Augustus Roebling, and
construction was begun in 1869 by his son Washington Augustus Roebling.
When the Brooklyn Bridge was opened for use on May 24, 1883, it was the
longest suspension bridge in the world. The main suspension span is 1595
feet long; the average height above the river is 133 feet; and the overall
length is 6775 feet.
you enjoyed your little tour of my home town. I recommend you taking a visit
to New York because it truly is an amazing city.
