Bridges in New York

Due to the island-like nature of New York, it is impossible to commute around without interacting with at least one of the many bridges that connects the state together. However, these bridges do more than just connect the state together. These bridges are also works of art and architecture that people enjoy sightseeing and walking along to appreciate them.

Quite possibly the most famous bridge of all is the Brooklyn Bridge, which is a 5,989 foot long bridge that connects Manhattan and Brooklyn together. It has a long history of carrying horse-drawn carriages and trains, but nowadays, it is only limited to cars, pedestrians, and cyclists.

Another bridge that is a marvel to look at is the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, which is a cantilever bridge that hovers over the East River. It connects Manhattan and Queensboro, but between it is also Roosevelt Island. Due to the close proximity between Queensboro and Manhattan, the length of the bridge is only 3,724 feet.

When it comes to architectural masterpieces, the Hell Gate Bridge is no slouch. It has a total length of 17,000 feet, and it connects Randalls Island with Queens. The bridge was a four year project which was finished in 1916, and the care that was taken when building the bridge was so precise, that when the final piece was placed, there was only a 7.9mm adjustment necessary to join everything together.

The High Bridge which is located in Uptown Harlem is also the oldest bridge in the city, and it has a total length of 1450 feet.

Finally, the Manhattan Bridge is a very popular bridge that is used among both tourists and locals of the city of New York. Similar to the Brooklyn Bridge, it also connects Manhattan and Brooklyn, but it also includes subway tracks. The entrance to the Manhattan Bridge is right around Chinatown, and a popular spot for tourists to take fashionable photos is DUMBO, which is an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.
