Everyone else comes to the Bridge to take a photo and move on. Not us - we'll understand the huge effort that went in to getting the Bridge built, the lives lost and made, the scandals and celebrations. It's such a beautiful bridge but even better when you understand how it came to be. In many ways the story of New York is the story of the Brooklyn Bridge. Almost nothing you see in the City existed before the Bridge - we'll use the Bridge as a way to understand the City that rose around it - the buildings, the other bridges, the transportation system, the people. And then there are all the fun stories that span 140 years. Who knows if 2 hours is enough! I'll keep going until you've heard all you need to know about the Brooklyn Bridge.
