You are probably thinking of the Henry Hudson Bridge.

The Brooklyn Bridge is the one and only name the bridge has. Meaning, "The Brooklyn Bridge" IS the correct name. Originally it was called the New York and Brooklyn Bridge, but that was before Brooklyn became part of New York City.

According to Wikipedia, the oldest bridge in New York State is the Hyde Hall Covered Bridge (1823). It's also recognized as the oldest covered bridge in the USA, although some folks in Vermont might contest that.

The Brooklyn Bridge spans the East River and was built to connect the City of New York with the City of Brooklyn. Since the bridge was opened, Brooklyn has become one of the five Boros of New York City.


No, they are not the same bridge. Three bridges connect Lower Manhattan to Brooklyn: the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge and Williamsburg Bridge. The Brooklyn Bridge is the furthest south, the Manhattan Bridge is in the middle, and the Williamsburg Bridge is the furthest north. The Brooklyn Bridge was originally called the "New York and Brooklyn Bridge," which is perhaps where some of the confusion comes from. But when the bridge opened in 1883, New York City consisted mostly of just Manhattan. It was not until 15 years later, in 1898, that the five boroughs -- Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island -- united to form modern-day New York City. Before then, Brooklyn was its own city (the other three consisted of small towns and farmland), so the bridge was called the "New York and Brooklyn Bridge" because it united the city of New York and the city of Brooklyn. Of course, today Brooklyn is part of New York City, so calling it the "New York and Brooklyn Bridge" is redundant.



The Brooklyn Bridge has come to be a symbol of New York City.


New York City was named for the Duke of York, who received the colony as a gift from his brother, King Charles II of England.


It got its name from the borough of Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Bridge connects the borough of Manhattan to the borough of Brooklyn. Originally it was called the New York and Brooklyn Bridge, but that was before Brooklyn became part of New York City. Before the five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island) consolidated into one city, New York City consisted of just Manhattan. Now that Brooklyn is part of New York City, calling the bridge the "New York and Brooklyn Bridge" is redundant.
