The Brooklyn Bridge is not an island. As the name suggests, The Brooklyn Bridge is a bridge. New York City is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island.

At which area of Brooklyn does the bridge traverse the East River?

I'm assuming you're talking about the Brooklyn Bridge. There are three bridges that connect Brooklyn to Lower Manhattan.

Since neighborhoods in New York City do not have precise boundaries, it's difficult to pinpoint exactly which neighborhood of the two the Bridge starts in.

How did landforms affect the Brooklyn bridges building?

Building the Brooklyn Bridge near the end of the 1870s was a very difficult task, as the tools were still not powerful enough like nowadays. But this was not the only problem, as the bridge had to overcome a huge distance on the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn, where the riverbed was very muddy. The first task was to find a solid bedrock for the base of the bridge, but it turned out that it was even deeper than expected, so work was halted for a while for further investigations.
