The Manhattan Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the East River in New York City, connecting Lower Manhattan with Downtown Brooklyn designed by Leon Moisseiff.
Construction started after 3 failed proposals, oe of which was shot down by the Municipal Arts Commissionnfor its bare design, in 1903. The New York City Rapid Transit system added the subway tracks in 1907, now housing the M, J, & Z. The bridge opened to traffic on December 31, 1909.
It was built by The Phoenix Bridge Company and is noted for its innovative design. As the first suspension bridge to employ Josef Melan's deflection theory for the stiffening of its deck, it is considered to be the forerunner of modern suspension bridges. This design served as the model for many of the long-span suspension bridges built in the first half of the twentieth century. The Manhattan Bridge was also the first suspension bridge to utilize a Warren truss in its design. It's recent renovation in 2004 totaled $800 million in repair costs.

Well my time in the USA is at it's end! Despite a bit of a stressful morning, I got to finish it off doing one of the things I've always wanted to - outdoor skating in Central Park 😊
New York looked amazing from here, and it really turned on the weather for a gorgeous, sunny day. What an incredible trip it's been! So many memories, and things seen. After traveling on my own, I feel so much more capable than I did before 😊 But, I am very much looking forward to getting home 😁 #jadehawleypt#ninjaintraining#ninjasinnewyork#aussiesintheusa#aussietraveller#ilovenewyork

There is a very big difference between these 2 photos - the photo on the left was taken 3 years ago (February of 2016) - I was in such a different place then - mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Even though I’ve encountered some serious trials and tribulations as I’ve progressed through life I can tell you that I’m more sure of myself now than ever. Things tend to roll off of my back easier. I don’t sweat the small stuff. I don’t engage in trivial arguments or entertain dead ends in conversations. It’s funny once I moved to New York I started to become a better version of me. I leveled up - surrounded myself with those greater than me- and now I can see the difference in my life - it’s even in my face. There’s one thing that’s for certain if you’re not growing you’re dying - always strive to be better - often it will even be seen on the outside the Changes we’ve made on the inside. Embrace change. #ilovenewyork#newyork#3yearsago#change#move#faceyourfears#progress#fitnessmodel#goodingoodout#fitness#eatclean#iam1stphorm#legionofboom1stphorm#1stphormlegionnaire#1stphormathletesearch
