Brooklyn Bridge, 1898

August 7, 2011

The Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Side, 1898, from the Museum of the City of New York collection.

Amazingly, this configuration, with its railroad, streetcar, pedestrian walkway, and space for horse-drawn carriages, moved more people than the six lanes of car traffic and pedestrian walkway/cyclist path layout we know today.
