May 24, 1883: The Brooklyn Bridge Opens
130 years ago today, the Brooklyn Bridge opened to the public.
The Brooklyn Bridge was the first Ken Burns documentary to be broadcast on PBS. Explore Burns’s Brooklyn Bridge timeline, which shows the progression of the Manhattan-Brooklyn Bridge, which was the premier engineering feat of its time, and puts its construction in greater historical context.
