Brooklyn Bridge 07 BW
Piece description from the artist
Opened on May 24, 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge was designed by German immigrant John Augustus Roebling and was the world's longest bridge at the time. It has a main span across the East River of 1,595.5 ft, connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan, and was the first cable suspension bridge ever completed; it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972. It is undoubtedly an icon of not only New York, but also America, and this visit in 2014 was actually my first time crossing the bridge on foot (even after having lived there & visited many, many times). Not ashamed to say that it was HBO's Sex and the City that made me add it to my personal bucket list.
