Brooklyn Bridge @ New York

Brooklyn bridge connects the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. It is the oldest suspension bridge in North America and was completed in 1883. It is now a National Historic Landmark. I would think this bridge is second most easily recognizable bridge in the world after the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge. It has six lanes for motor vehicles, with a separate walkway along the centerline for pedestrians and bicycles. Thousand of visitor walk past this bridge everyday to enjoy the fantastic view of Manhattan. Make sure that you able to walk 1.8km to pass this bridge.

The view of Manhattan from the bridge is classic.

Iconic web like pattern. Picture taken from pedestrian walkway.

Watching vehicles pass by the bridge. Nice!
