Beautiful bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge opened on May 24, 1883, making it 125 years old last Saturday. As part of the celebration, the Ellis Island Immigration Museum has a small exhibit on immigrants’ contributions to its construction. You’ll find it near the baggage area in the museum, through Sunday, June 1.

(As a side note, May 1 was the centennial of the subway’s arrival in Brooklyn. The date went virtually unnoticed, but the MTA did run a special train from Grand Central to Atlantic Avenue and back to Manhattan.)
