Brooklyn Bridge
Take A or C train to High St.- Brooklyn Bridge (in Brooklyn) or 4, 5, 6 to Borough Hall station (in Manhattan).

The sight of this landmark instantly identifies NYC. It is the city's oldest bridge and is today a major tourist attraction. Designed by the brilliant engineer and German immigrant John Augustus Roebling, the Brooklyn Bridge is full of stories of personal tragedy. Roebling's dream was completed by his son, as the father died during bridge construction. When finished in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Today it is still an inspiration for many artists, and a great place for a Sunday walk or bike ride.
