Brooklyn Bridge: 130 Years!


Today is the 130th anniversary of the dedication of the Brooklyn Bridge, one of New York City’s iconic structures.

My favorite depictions of the Bridge are the watercolors and prints created by artist John Marin in the early 20th century. Here’s an etching from 100 years ago, from the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C.
