19 Mind-Blowing Photos of the Brooklyn Bridge

Share this:

The Brooklyn Bridge turned 133 this week! On May 24, 1883, the largest suspension bridge in the world (at the time) opened. The perfect bridge took over a decade to build and cost millions of dollars. Opening day was a celebration with music, fireworks and people as far as the eye could see.

We’ve told you all the odd things that went into construction, such as how the bridge was doomed to fail and that there’s a bomb shelter hidden inside, but sometimes you just want to appreciate the beauty of this architectural masterpiece. Old, new, classic and unique. Enjoy!
