Join lecturer, author and photographer Kevin Woyce as he tells the stories of how and why the most famous bridges were built. Included are the High Bridge of the Croton Aqueduct, the Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg, Queensboro, and Triborough Bridges, plus the George Washington Bridge. This program is illustrated with original photographs and historic images of Manhattan’s iconic bridges —past and present— and of the city they helped to shape.
