New York Brooklyn Bridge area

Visiting the Brooklyn Bridge in New York? This bridge that opened in 1883 stretches along 1.8 km and is dubbed the world’s largest suspension bridge. In 1883 more than 150,000 people crossed this bridge. Did you know that in 1884, not everyone felt safe to cross it so P.T. Barnum led 21 elephants along with a caravan full of circus animals along the bridge and proved them wrong.
