Brooklyn Bridge

Description
Constructed of limestone, granite, and natural cement, the Gothic design of the Brooklyn Bridge is that of engineer John Augustus Roebling.  Early on in the construction, Roebling died from complications caused by an injury sustained at the site.  His son, Washington, succeeded him, but he was stricken with decompression sickness caused from working in the caissons.  Many supervisorial responsibilities would fall to Emily Warren Roebling, Washington’s wife. #AIA_150 #building #famous #landmark #landmarks #Manhattan #New_York #NY
