 Overview
 Description
A grand suspension bridge 6, 855 feet long that lies across the East River connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn. Designed by Leon Solomon Moisseiff (who also designed the Benjamin Franklin Bridge in Delaware and the Tacoma Narrows Bridge which famously collapsed in Washington in 1940), the Manhattan was one of his many successful projects. It's also notable for being the first bridge which used Warren truss (metal archways to provide strength) in it's design.

     History
    The construction for the Manhattan Bridge began in 1901, and wasn't completely finished until 1912. It is considered to be a leading example of modern bridges and is used as a model for many of the bridges that followed in the 20th century. By 1917, subway tracks had also been installed. The cables are 21 inches thick, and the bridge span required 30, 000 tons of steel. in 1910, the grand archway on the Manhattan side was built in associations with the "City Beautiful" movement. A few workers died during it's construction and several repairs had to be made during the 1900's.
