The Brooklyn Bridge, which connects Manhattan and Brooklyn, is an iconic part of the New York skyline and a symbol of the city's thriving past. This National Historic Landmark opened in 1883, after 13 years of construction. Today, visitors can cross it on foot, bicycle, in-line skate, or car. It is accessible from Brooklyn at Tillary and Adams streets and Sands and Pearl streets. In Manhattan, pedestrians can access it from the pedestrian walkway at the end of Centre Street. Although much of the original structure still stands, in recent decades the bridge has been refurbished and strengthened to handle the approximately 145,000 vehicles that pass in both directions each day.
