Fun Fact May 24, 2021.

According to History dot com, It took 14 years, but it was worth it.  On this date in 1883 the Brooklyn Bridge was open, connecting the cities of New York and Brooklyn.  Thousands of residents of Brooklyn and Manhattan Island turned out to witness the dedication ceremony, which was presided over by President Chester A. Arthur and New York Governor Grover Cleveland. Designed by the late John A. Roebling, the Brooklyn Bridge was the largest suspension bridge ever built to that date. Dubbed “the eighth wonder of the world” the span crosses the East River providing a connection between the massive populations of Brooklyn and Manhattan for the first time and changed New York City forever.  In 1898, the city of Brooklyn formally merged with New York City, Staten Island, and a few farm towns, forming Greater New York.
