New York Brooklyn Bridge

Brooklyn Bridge in New York was built between 1869 and 1883, by Dutch settlers and was designed by German immigrant John Augustus Roebling, who didn’t make it to the end of the construction and died in an accident during the work on the bridge along with 20 other workers. This was before Brooklyn became New York’s Borough. It took them 14 years to build the bridge, and in 1883 more than 150,000 people crossed it. But not everyone felt safe to cross it… Because of the many doubters, in 1884, P.T. Barnum, led 21 elephants along with a caravan full of circus animals, and proved them all wrong!
