A tourist in New York City. Staten Island ferry: Brooklyn Bridge

Desde el paseo en barco en el ferry de Staten Island es posible obtener, mediante teleobjetivo una bonita vista de la silueta del Puente de Brooklyn. La espuma de la lancha de vigilancia de la policía cambia, da un cierto aire abstracto, a la foto.



The Brooklyn Bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge in New York City and is one of the oldest bridges of either type in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. It has a main span of 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m), and was the first steel-wire suspension bridge constructed. It was originally referred to as the New York and Brooklyn Bridge and as the East River Bridge, but it was later dubbed the Brooklyn Bridge, a name coming from an earlier January 25, 1867
