Verrazano-Narrows Bridge

One of the longest suspension bridges in the world

The bridge was completed in 1964 according to plans by Othmar A. Amman from Switzerland and connects Brooklyn and Staten Island. It crosses the Narrows, the strait that marks the entrance to New York's natural harbour. Giovanni da Verrazano, the first European to enter New York Bay, dropped anchor here in 1524. With an entire length of 4,176m/4567yd (largest span 1,298m/1417yd) it is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. The monument at the bridgehead consists of stones from Verrazano Castle in Tuscany as well as from the beach at the French city of Dieppe, from where Verrazano set sail.
