Brooklyn Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it was built in 1883 and around 1,800 vehicles and 150,000 people crossed it on the day it opened. It measures 1,834m and links Brooklyn Island with Manhattan. The bridge was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and was used as the venue for a march to legalise same-sex marriage.

The bridge has six lanes, a metro line and a pedestrian walkway.
