Looming over New York City’s East River is the majestic Brooklyn Bridge. Hard to miss when in New York City, the bridge links the two boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn and is one of the oldest bridges in the United States and was once the world's largest suspension bridge. The Brooklyn Bridge took 14 years to be constructed and is now an iconic feature of the New York City skyline, offering a panoramic view of the city. It is also one of the few bridges in the world that has a path for pedestrians. The elevated pedestrian path allows visitors to cross the river without being bothered by traffic, and it also offers magnificent views of the area and Manhattan's skyline. The breathtaking view in fact attracts millions of tourists every year.
