Brooklyn Bridge
NY's Oldest & Most Famous Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge is the oldest and most famous bridge in New York. Over 100,000 people crossed the bridge on its historic opening day — May 24, 1883. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964.

Today, it is a popular city attraction — and one of the most photographed bridges in the world. A star in its own right (and an iconic part of the New York City skyline), the bridge has been featured in many movies and TV shows — its pedestrian walkway was highlighted in a pivotal scene from the 2008 hit movie "Sex in the City."

Brooklyn Bridge, New York

Brooklyn Bridge is 6016 feet long and spans the East River, connecting lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
