The longest bridges in New York City
There are more than 2,000 bridges and tunnels connecting the arterial routes of New York City. Unique and courageous works of genius that go hand in hand with the history of the American infrastructure boom. They tell epic stories, like the heroic efforts that led to the inauguration on May 24, 1883 of the Brooklyn Bridge. When the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge was opened in 1964, it was the world’s largest suspension bridge and is still the longest in the United States of America. These bridges are essential to development of the city, as demonstrated by the Washington Bridge, one of the busiest arteries in the world, over which 102 million vehicles pass every year.
