The Brooklyn Bridge

<p>The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. It connects Brooklyn to Manhattan, spanning the East River. When built in 1883, it represented a huge leap forward in technology and became a symbol of the optimism that characterized the turn of the century. The Brooklyn Bridge was named a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972. The bridge has an elevated pedestrian walkway used by over 4000 people a day; it served as a major exit from lower Manhattan on 9/11.</p>
