Officially renamed the Brooklyn Bridge in 1915, this depiction produced by Currier & Ives was published only two years after construction was completed. Opened on May 24, 1883, this was the first fixed crossing across the East River and would become a true icon of not only New York City, but the United States. Currier & Ives were prolific producers of these birds' eye perspectives, which served as a vehicle for residents and merchants alike to display their civic pride.
This was the world's first major steel-wire suspension bridge, and it's immediately recognizable Neo-gothic stone towers have been featured in art and literature since its opening. The bridge was a feat of civil engineering of the time and would lay the groundwork for other iconic suspension bridges, including the Golden Gate.
Traffic across the bridge was robust and more than a million people crossed in the first six months alone, with this number increasing to 17 million in the year this map was published. The distinctive aesthetic of this map immediately transports the viewer back in time and is a truly authentic piece of cartographical history.
The Statue of Liberty that greeted the throngs of immigrants stands proudly in the background, and many notable places are indexed on the map. The panorama illustrates the bustling bay and shows the transition from traditional sailing vessels to steamships. By connecting the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn, the city was nearing consolidation and becoming what would be recognizable today.
