New York Brooklyn Bridge is not only the longest bridge in the United States, but it is also the world’s largest bridge. The length of the bridge is calculated as 6016 feet. The bridge extends over the East Rive and connects the Manhattan and Brooklyn boroughs.
John Augustus Roebling from Ohio was the architect of this bridge. He was the one who designed the bridge connecting Cincinnati and Covington. The bridge was built in 1883 and took almost 14 years to become available for the public. It took so long because the Augustus fell ill and passed away and the project had to be postponed.
After the death of Augustus, his son, Washington Roebling took charge of the project but unfortunately; he also fell ill and died. Later, his wife, Emily Warren Roebling took over the project. The bridge was opened may 1883 for general public. Emily was the first to cross the bridge. Later on the first day, 1,800 vehicles and 150,300 people crossed the bridge.
After a first week of opening, a rumor that the bridge was going to collapse caused the stampede, about twelve people crushed and killed due to stampede.
In early years, the means of conveyance were based on trolleys, streetcars and horses, but late automobiles and cyclists become active. However, the bridge was not mended to hold such large traffic, yet the architecture design of John A. Roebling is enough to serve its job.
