Past/Present: Brooklyn Bridge

Today we have a new P/P post, featuring prints of Brooklyn Bridge. Spanning the East River, the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. Construction was completed in 1883, and it has since become a fixture of the New York City skyline. This is a “series” P/P today, as we have four prints instead of two. Enjoy!
