The Brooklyn Bridge Turns 130!

May 24 is the anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge's opening in 1883. Here are two gems from the archives to celebrate this majestic structure, no doubt one of the world's most recognizable bridges! The image of the view from the Bridge is from the library's Rothman Lantern Slide Collection and the poem is from the Henry Harap pocket in Pocket Knowledge and was written by A.E. Albrecht, New York's Director of Department of Agriculture and Markets back in the 1930s.
