May 24, 2008, marked the 125th anniversary of the opening of New York's Brooklyn Bridge. The elegant structure slung over the East River took more than 13 years to build and was at the time the longest suspension bridge in the world. With its stocky towers and delicate webs of steel cables, the bridge is still regarded as an architectural marvel.
