3rd January 1870 Work on the Brooklyn Bridge began.
BROOKLYN BRIDGE by Anaïs Mitchell from the album: Anaïs Mitchell, 2022
The song is about a young woman who is leaving her home in Brooklyn to go to the city. She is sad to leave her home and her friends, but she is excited to see the sights and sounds of the city.
THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE by Barry Manilow from the album: This Is My Town: Songs of New York Year, 2017
The song is a love letter to New York City, and specifically to the Brooklyn Bridge. Manilow reflects on how the city has changed over the years, but the bridge remains a constant.
