Brooklyn Bridge in New York City

The Brooklyn Bridge built in 1869-1883 spans the East River between Brooklyn and Manhattan. It is ranked as one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century and remains one of New York’s most popular and well known landmarks. It was designated a National Historical Landmark in 1964 and a National Historical Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972.

Trained as a civil engineer I have always dreamed of touring this renowned bridge and I finally took the opportunity for a two-day trip several years ago. On our first day, we took an evening cruise from 41-42 Street dock on Hudson River to Stature of Liberty and proceeded to East River under Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges.

The next morning we took the opportunity to walk on the elevated pedestrian deck of the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn borough. It was such a pleasant walk to see the details of the bridge structure and to view the skyscrapers of lower Manhattan.
