Which Bridge is which? (Wednesday's Wisdom)
The three bridges in the photograph atop this entry are, The Brooklyn Bridge, The Manhattan Bridge and The Williamsburg Bridge as they appear (respectively) when one looks north up the East River in Manhattan. In this picture Brooklyn is on the right-hand side; Manhattan's on the left.
It's easy to remember the order of these bridges when facing this direction if you think of the automobile known as The BMW.
I'm sharing this fun fact today, May 24th, because on this very day, in the year of 1883 (or 134 years ago), The Brooklyn Bridge opened! Happy Birthday, dear Brooklyn Bridge, Happy Birthday to you!
