Such a beast of a bridge! It was interesting to learn more about the engineer's wife Emily and the crucial role she played in helping see the project through. Next time I walk across the bridge I'll have even more admiration!

Thoughtful, informative, well shot, well edited, and thoroughly engrossing! Makes you want to walk the length of the Brooklyn Bridge. Plus, any documentary featuring Kurt Vonnegut is in my good graces.
