There are many suspension bridges in New York City. To name a few: the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge, the Williamsburg Bridge, the George Washington Bridge, the Throgs Neck Bridge, the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, and the East River Bridge.

The East River Bridge is part of the Triboro aka Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, which is actually three connected bridges. The other two are the Harlem River Bridge (a lift bridge) and the Bronx Kill Crossing (a truss bridge).
