Join us on a walk across the "Great Bridge"—once the longest suspension bridge in the world—as we learn about its creation and early history.

We'll discuss the work of the Roebling family, the designers of the bridge, and the sacrifice and dramatic story of the immigrant workers who built it. We'll hear about Stephen Brody, the only person originally credited with jumping off the bridge—and living to tell about it, and PT Barnum, whose spectacular theatrics instilled confidence in New Yorkers to cross the span. We end at the Brooklyn Promenade to view the magnificent Manhattan skyline at twilight—only steps from Grimaldi's Pizza, the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, The River Cafe and the restaurants and cafes of Montague Street.

This tour is approximately 2 hours long.


Meet at the statue of Ben Franklin at Spruce St and Park Row in Lower Manhattan in front of Pace University. Subway: 4,5,6 to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall. Subway: 4,5,6 to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall.
