 Overview
 Description
Built in 1909, the Queensboro Bridge is a cantilever bridge that connects the neighborhood of Long Island City in the borough of Queens with the neighborhood of the Upper East Side Manhattan, passing over Roosevelt Island. An organised chaos of metal, it stretches 3,724 feet across the East River. It carries pedestrian traffic, motor vehicles and subway lines. The climb up is tight, precarious and exhilarating.
