Brooklyn Bridge Tower
Photograph - Photography
This tower was completed in 1875, the bridge in 1883 so I believe this is the Brooklny side tower. Twenty Seven people died during the construction of this bridge and its chief engineer/architect suffered from the bends for the rest of his life. Washington Roebling and hid father John designed and built the bridge at great personal sacrifice. Its a story worth reading about. "The Great Bridge" By David McCullough tells it all and tells it well.
