For years I have been intrigued with the Brooklyn Bridge. Its stature, its beauty and its connection of the islands of Manhattan and Brooklyn are impressive. In the documentary Ken Burns' Brooklyn Bridge the film maker chronicles the history of the 14 years it took to build the bridge. With little technology, the feat is pretty astounding. Burns does a great job weaving the politics, materials and ingenuity into a fascinating narrative. Worth a look.
