One of the most recognized bridges in the world, the iconic Brooklyn Bridge is an absolute must-visit.
Designed in 1869 by civil-engineer John A. Roebling, this steel-wire suspension bridge spans 1.3 miles, connecting Brooklyn to lower Manhattan and first opened in 1883.
Though millions of commuters use this bridge as a means of necessary transportation, it’s the gothic arches of its two towers and the pedestrian walkway that makes it as recognizable and special as it is.
Each day the Brooklyn Bridge gets bikers, rollerbladers, runners and casual walkers utilizing its pedestrian path to take in the spectacular views of the infamous Manhattan skyline.
Open 24-hours per day, the Brooklyn Bridge is breathtaking at any time of day, but it’s particularly magical at sunset, and glistens with whimsical, classic wonder at night.
