Brooklyn Bridge, built between 1869 and 1883, connects Manhattan with New York’s most populous borough, Brooklyn.
Brooklyn Bridge belongs to New York City’s most impressive tourist attractions. However, if you would like to experience a more authentic and less touristic experience, just take a walk across the Williamsburg Bridge. Whereas the Brooklyn Bridge was made of stone, had the Williamsburg Bridge steel towers to support the bridge’s suspension cables.
The bridge’s chief engineer was Leffert Buck who had earlier worked with the man who designed the Paris Eiffel Tower, so no surprise the two objects may have similar looks. Whereas the Brooklyn Bridge took thirteen 13 years for completion was the Williamsburg Bridge built in six and a half years, half the time of the Brooklyn Bridge, due to better construction methods and the use of steel to build the towers
