New! Berenice Abbott’s Manhattan Bridge
It’s time for a holiday treat. We can’t share our T-day leftovers over the internet, but we’re serving up another something special: FREE shipping on all orders in the continental US when you spend $50 or more—through this Monday, 11/28 at 11:59pm PT only! Use code YIPPEE.
Folks who’ve been with us for a while know we rarely ever offer free shipping—we’re a super small team and take extra care packing and shipping every artwork, so the cost of shipping isn’t something we can usually cover. Consider this your once-in-a-blue-moon chance to score the satisfaction of free shipping for all the art in your cart—prints, framed prints, or objects. Just spend $50+ and enter code YIPPEE at checkout.
This is a great opportunity to get that holiday gift list in order. Our order deadlines for guaranteed delivery for some holiday cheer are coming up—11/28 for the first night of Hanukkah and 12/5 for Christmas Eve. Orders placed after that date could still get to you in time (and we have select pieces that’ll ship with speedier service for on-sched arrival), but there won’t be any other opportunity to snag free shipping. Use YIPPEE by midnight PT on Monday, 11/28!
The FINE PRINT (not to be confused with our fine prints)

It’s easy to take bridges for granted. We speed across (or more appropriately for New Yorkers, we pay a toll then crawl slowly across) from point A to point B without much thought. But with Berenice Abbott's Manhattan Bridge, Looking Up, we’re once again reminded of the steadfastness and stateliness of bridges: the feats of engineering, their role as literal and symbolic representations of interconnectivity, and all the different ways in which they appear in our lives.
Shot in 1936, Manhattan Bridge, Looking Up sucks us straight in. Abbott’s composition and use of light and line evoke awe of the mechanical structure above. Though we’re used to the Manhattan Bridge being part of the New York City skyline, it was barely thirty years old when Abbott photographed it for her series Changing New York. It certainly must have felt like the city was changing around her as Brooklyn and Manhattan became even more closely connected.
Abbott’s eye-catching photograph is extra special to us here at 20x200 as we peer out at this very structure everyday from HQ. We’ve been nestled under these iconic towers for several years now, surrounded by so many other creative companies and inspiring vistas! And yes, those Washington Street Instagrammers too. 😏
We’re thrilled to add another compelling Berenice Abbott image to our growing collection of Vintage Editions. These images shape our vision of the future and history—and look pretty dang spectacular on our walls as well. Collect Berenice Abbott’s brilliant bridge photograph: Manhattan Bridge, Looking Up.
