New York's Brooklyn Bridge

Brooklyn Bridge is the most influential bridge in American history, located in New York. It's New York City's most celebrated architectural wonder. It was designed by John Augustus Roebling (1806-1869), an brilliant engineer, but completed by his son Washington Roebling (1837-1926). It was the longest suspension bridge in the world in 1883, when it was completed, and it was the first constructed bridge using steel. The bridge links the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn which were once two separate cities.
