Toni Tan | Manhattan Bridge

The Manhattan Bridge spans the East River, connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Built in 1909, it's elaborate entry with its triumphal arch and collonade, include pylons sculpted by Carl A. Heber and a frieze called "Buffalo Hunt" by Charles Rumsey. The bridge arches have been designated landmarks.

It is one of three suspension bridges to be built across the river. The Brooklyn Bridge was built first, Williamsburg second, with the Manhattan bridge last in the trio.

The bridge leads to Canal Street in NYC Chinatown on the Manhattan side, and to DUMBO on the Brooklyn side.
