The New York bridges must be among the most overlooked attractions in the Big Apple. New York is one of the world’s greatest cities and it is packed with so many things to see and do that often, the things that help it function and do what it does, to make it what it is, just sit there, happily existing for many years, grateful for those times when the tourist spotlight falls on them. Did you know that there are more than 2,000 New York bridges and tunnels? I’m certainly not suggesting you should pay attention to even a fraction of them, but there are 7 New York bridges that are easily included in a tour itinerary.
1. Brooklyn Bridge
Brooklyn Bridge is the perfect place to soak in a picturesque view of the Lower Manhattan skyline. Apart from that, it is also the most famous of the New York bridges for a number of reasons. When you walk on the bridge, you will be walking on the longest suspension bridge of its time and back then, the only bridge connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn. The bridge also features in movies such as The Dark Night Rises, I Am Legend and The Avengers.
