The camera points west toward the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan as a ferry boat crosses beneath.  The bridge itself was inspired by a ferry crossing in the winter of 1852 during which engineer John Roebling was stranded for hours by ice pack.  He decided then, there needed to be a bridge built, and by 1870 his dream was under construction.
