In this striking shot of the Manhattan Bridge, the metal structure looms over the two men walking across its span. The bridge, built in 1909, was the last of three suspension bridges connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn, but was especially notable for its innovative design. We get that sense of awe from Berenice Abbott's line-driven photograph, taken in 1935 as part of her series documenting the gentrification and physical changes to New York City. For us, the Manhattan Bridge is an iconic structure in the city's infrastructure, but for Abbott, it was part of a changing New York.
