Queensborough Bridge, New York City

The Queensborough Bridge in New York City was constructed between 1909 and 1910, and opened to traffic on December 31, 1910. The bridge spans the East River connecting Manhattan with Queens. The upper level of the bridge carries eight lanes of vehicular traffic, while the lower level contains three subway tracks and two pedestrian walkways. At the time of its completion, the Queensborough Bridge was the largest suspension bridge in the world.

The bridge's designer, Gustav Lindenthal, intended for the structure to be aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. To that end, he included several features that would set it apart from other bridges of the day. The most notable of these is the central span, which is 1,600 feet (488 meters) long, making it one of the longest spans ever built at that time. In addition, the bridge's towers are asymmetrical, with one being taller than the other. This was done to give the bridge a more graceful look.

Today, the Queensborough Bridge is an iconic part of New York City's skyline. It continues to carry millions of people across the East River every year and is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the city.
