A Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge

A view from above

The Brooklyn Bridge is fundamental to an understanding of New York. Through its "why" and "how" we read, for example:
     * the city's dynamic growth;
     * the unparalleled density of the Lower East Side; 
     * the creation of business and residential districts;
     * the first hard step in U.S. racial integration. 

The promenade offers spectacular views and, like the Bridge itself, is an emblem of the nation's values at its best as of its opening in 1883.
