The brainchild of the German immigrant and road builder, John Roebling this glorious bridge dates back to 1883. Roebling’s frustration of ice obstructing his crossover of the east river enkindled the creation of a national monument which unfortunately he never lived to see. It is a work of art that boasts immaculate strength where a web of cables is anchored to the ground and protects the structure from collapsing. But at the beginning many New York people of the time had their doubts and to prove them wrong a caravan of herd animals which included 21 elephants marched across the bridge leaving citizens in awe and confidence.
The two large masonry towers are the highlights of this beautiful bridge. The cables are attached to these two towers. The towers with two enormous gothic arches display a majestic aura and stand at a mighty height of 276 feet making them New York’ tallest landmarks of that time. The bridge in itself is something to admire and the picture from the footpath just adds to the glory of this historic attraction. Taking in a spectacular view of the symbolic towers of the bridge and the breathtaking Manhattan skyline, one can stroll across the bridge without being disturbed by traffic.
