Building a bridge that connected Manhattan to Brooklyn was impossible, unthinkable even, but not for John Roebling. Inspired by his experience when his ferryboat got stuck in the middle of the river because of ice, Roebling saw this as a worthy challenge and began preparations. Brilliant at civil engineering, he had designed and successfully built smaller suspension bridges all around America, helping his cause to convince others about the benefits for building over the East River. After thirteen years of many struggles and drawbacks, The Brooklyn Bridge was finished on May 24, 1883. Today, it stands both as an icon of the New York skyline and a testament of America’s will in tackling the impossible, no matter what the obstacle. The bridge is one of America’s oldest and spans over a mile long and is a hub for many locals and tourists alike. See which of Eric’s classic Easter eggs you can find like Wendy the goose and New York’s giant pizza slices.
