Description The Manhattan downtown skyline is seen here from the top of the Manhattan bridge. Built in 1909 it was the third bridge to connect Manhattan and Brooklyn. In many ways it is the most beautiful of the trio. It has delicate steel curves and abundant ornamentation. From the top of the bridge, next to the orb-like finials and with the cables reflected in the water below, the city seems like a beautiful fairy-tale version of itself.
Steve Duncan, Brooklyn, NY Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement As an urban historian & photographer, I try to peel back the layers of a city to see what's underneath. From the tops of bridges to the depths of sewer tunnels, these explorations of the urban environment help me puzzle together the interconnected, multi-dimensional history and complexity of the world's great cities.
