The Brooklyn Bridge

 

“…it stretches on cables of string to the feet of the stars.                                                           I stare as an eskimo gapes at a train,
I seize on it as a tick fastens to an ear.
Brooklyn Bridge–yes….
That’s quite a thing! ”                                                                                                                        -Vladimir Mayakovsky

The Brooklyn Bridge ranks as one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century and remains one of New York’s most popular and well known landmarks.
The impressive bridge spans the East river between Brooklyn and Manhattan and stretches for a length of 5989 ft. The length between the large towers is 1595.5 ft.
