Hi All,

The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the world and the United States, stretching 1825 m over the East River, connecting the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964.

Construction of the Brooklyn Bridge began on January 3, 1870 and it was opened to great fanfare on May 24, 1883. The names of John Roebling, Washington Roebling, and Emily Warren Roebling are inscribed on the structure as its builders. But it might not have been built without the assistance of Emily Warren Roebling, who provided the critical written link between her husband, Washington Roebling (the Chief Engineer), and engineers on-site. Thus the history of this bridge is interwoven with the lives of these three family members. The enclosed document gives more interesting details about this bridge and the engineers who built them. Hope you enjoy reading it.

Regards,
Subramanian
