The Brooklyn Bridge is not only one of the oldest bridges in the United States; it’s also one of the most photographed New York City landmarks. The bridge was completed in 1883 and connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn over the East River. It is a cable suspension bridge that is around 1,600 feet long, and is both a National Historic Landmark and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
