The Brooklyn Bridge as a Cinematic Star


The Brooklyn Bridge has been a favorite film location for countless movies. The Brooklyn Bridge IS New York City. More than the Statue of Liberty, which we have to share with those guys over in New Jersey; more than the Empire State Building, which we have to share with the rest of America; more than the United Nations, which we have to share with the rest of world.  The Brooklyn Bridge IS New York City. It is the ultimate NYC icon.
