Manhattan Monday 31 – Manhattan Bridge

Empire State Building NYC June 2013

Empire State Building NYC June 2013

The bridge in the photo above is the Manhattan Bridge, the middle of three (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg: BMW) bridges spanning the East River.

Last week I showed the Brooklyn Bridge, but forgot to mention that it had been completed in 1883;  of course Wikipedia can provide more information if you’re curious.

These three shots of the Manhattan bridge, opened in 1909, were taken from the East River ferry as we approached the bridge and passed under it. In the first, the Brooklyn bridge is in the background.

  1. I like this bridge a lot. We stayed near here for an NYC photo shoot. I got a couple of nice images of it but wish I’d spent more time on it like you did. Cheers.

  2. Beautiful pictures of the bridge and a fantastic NYC overview!!
