Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. It was opened in 1883. The bridge connects the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Today more than 120,000 cars pass over this bridge between the 2 boroughs. The Brooklyn bridge crosses the East River. The bridge is 1.8 kilometers (5989 feet) long and 26 meters (85 feet) wide. The US government designated this bridge as a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering landmark in 1972. This bridge has become an integral part of New York City’s skyline over the years. The Brooklyn bridge was built between 1870 and 1883. 27 people died during the construction period. This photo of the Brooklyn Bridge has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 19th of July 2010.
