Original caption: 149. Brooklyn Bridge, New York City. When Brooklyn Bridge, the first great suspension bridge in the world, was constructed in 1883 predictions were made that it would fall in the river, but the bridge which is one mile long, including approaches, still stands. This view from the Brooklyn side shows the latest skyscrapers of downtown Manhattan. From left to right are the Cities Service, Manhattan Company, Transportation, Woolworth, Municipal and the Federal Court Buildings.
