New York’s most seasoned old bridge is the Brooklyn Bridge which starts from Manhattan and bends with the East River and ends at Sam Street. The bridge was planned by John A. Roebling, who was a German origin, founded the largest steel cable factory of the world and who was an expert in building suspension bridges. During the construction, Roebling had and accident which resulted in blood poisoning and then after two weeks of suffering he died leaving his son who served under General Grand of civil war to make his plans come true. The bridge didn’t bring luck to the family as during the construction, Washington Roebling became paralyzed and was able to watch the Grandioso Opening Ceremony from a wheelchair from a window of his house. The longest suspension bridge in the world at that time was opened in the spring of 1883 in the presence of the president of the United States, Chester Arthur and the governor of New York, Grover Cleveland, later to become president. In the evening, the two politicians saluted the disabled builder by building a huge crowd in a torchlight parade. We can enjoy the nicest panorama of the downtown from the bridge.
