USA - New York City - Bridges over the East River

There are a lot of options for crossing the East River in NYC: There are bridges, tunnels and ferries.
This series of five pictures covers three well-known bridges that are relatively close together.

The main picture shows the Manhattan Bridge, a suspension bridge that connects Lower Manhattan with Downtown Brooklyn. The bridge opened to traffic on December 31, 1909.
And yes, there was a blue hour in NYC.
You may remember that I said that in the south of India I had never seen the blue hour and yet I was out in time.

In the WS you see the Brooklyn Bridge, a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge. It also connects Lower Manhattan with Brooklyn.
The Brooklyn Bridge started construction in 1869 and was completed in 1883.
Since then it has become an icon of NYC.

And finally you find also the Williamsburg Bridge in the WS.
It’s a suspension bridge and connets the Lower East Side of Manhattan with the Williamsburg neighbourhood of Brooklyn. The construction was completed in 1903.
