Manhattan’s first bridge, the wooden King’s Bridge, opened in 1693.
Today, twenty bridges link the island to the boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens,
and The Bronx, and to New Jersey. I will tell the stories of how and why the
most famous bridges were built, including the High Bridge of the Croton
Aqueduct, the Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg, Queensboro, and
Triborough Bridges, and the George Washington Bridge. The program is
illustrated with original photographs and historic images of Manhattan’s
iconic bridges—past and present—and of the city they helped to shape.
