To look upon this magnificent structure is to behold what was one of the great engineering feats of it’s day. However, there was something unknown to the builders and residents of New York City back in 1883. The linking of two counties, Manhattan and Kings (Brooklyn), was to become the catalyst of a five-borough metropolis. New York grew to be recognized as “the greatest city in the world.” It’s amazing what a man's dream along with some bricks and steel stretched across water can lead to. It’s also amazing as to what this bridge can lead to on either side. Drive, walk or bicycle across this bridge. Connect with the past and present.
