Brooklyn Bridge. One of the things you could do with a view camera was straighten out the perspective with tilts and swings. Here I was actually looking up at the bridge but it appears as if I’m level with it. 1995
One of the top 10 New York City tourist attractions.
The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. With a main span of 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m), it was the longest suspension bridge in the world from its opening until 1903, and the first steel-wire suspension bridge. There are many walking tours offered of the bridge.
