Brooklyn Bridge Under Construction, 1877

Brooklyn Bridge Under Construction, 1877

The Brooklyn Bridge is probably the most famous bridge in the United States, rivaled only by the Golden Gate.  Here we see it in 1877, seven years into its construction.  Visitors stand on a catwalk above the Brooklyn side, while the camera points west toward Manhattan.  When it opened in 1883, it would link two of the nations largest cities, paving the way for the creation of the City of Greater New York.
