Williamsburg Bridge

March 9th, 2012

The world's longest suspension bridge from 1903 to 1924, the Williamsburg Bridge has a very unusual design: as you can see in this photo, only the center span (the section of the bridge between the two towers) is suspended from the cables.

In the photo above, taken on the Manhattan side of the bridge, you can see the elevated pedestrian and bike paths, the roadway, and the subway tracks (currently used by the J, M, and Z trains).
