Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, 1964

from 315.00

I love the sight of the Verrazano from lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.  It's massive span feels lighter than air connecting Brooklyn with Staten Island.  This photo during construction has a similar feel - the roadway feels like a ribbon reaching across the narrows rather than a span of concrete and steel.  Named for the first European explorer to enter New York Harbor, the Verrazano-Narrows bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time of its completion, surpassing the Golden Gate by 60 feet. It still remains today the gateway through which all major ships must pass into New York Harbor.
