Date: November 2, 1986
Opened in May 1883, the bridge crosses the East River and once was the World’s Largest Suspension Bridge in the World and the first to use steel for its cable wire. Rosie and I ran across the 1,600-foot main span of the bridge during the 1986 New York Marathon. The view crossing it from Brooklyn to Manhattan is incredible. You can even see the Statue of Liberty to the south. The bridge is named one of the 7 Wonders of the Industrial World.
