Description Looking South and West; Roosevelt Island and the East River visible below, and Manhattan beyond.New York's Queensboro Bridge is a cantilever bridge, with four irregularly-spaced towers that step across the East River and over Roosevelt Island. Including approaches, the bridge is well over a mile long.It was completed in 1909, and it opened up Queens for both residential and commercial development. (Queens had only become part of NYC a few years before, in the 1898 consolidation of the boroughs.)

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.
