Love and Suspension
The Brooklyn Bridge is an iconic image of New York City — accessible, functional, beautiful. At 130 years old, the bridge has withstood the installation of a nuclear bunker, plots by terrorists, and the heights and depths of human emotions. It draws lovers, jumpers and 150,000 commuters every day. The bridge also bears the weight of padlocks fastened by couples whose steely declarations of enduring love include throwing the lock’s key into the East River.
