Above New York: Aerial View of the Williamsburg Bridge

Explore all angles of the Williamsburg Bridge from a birds-eye view in this latest aerial video from our Above New York series.

When it opened in 1903, the Williamsburg Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world with a span over the East River totaling 1,600 feet, and a total length of 7,308 feet from end to end. Each tower is 310 feet tall and supports 4 massive cables that are a foot and a half thick. These 4 cables and the thousands of smaller ones total nearly 17,500 miles combined.

The music featured in the video is from Joakin Karud — "Candyd"
