The Williamsburg Bridge
Here is film by Thomas Edison of the the 1903 opening ceremony of the Williamsburg Bridge
The Williamsburg Bridge is the ugly duckling of the East River bridges. And yet, I love it like a parent loves their "special" child. I've walked back and forth over this bridge many times from my home in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to my studio just a block from the Manhattan entrance. I'll never get tired of it.
