Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, suspension connects spreading over New York Harbor from Brooklyn to Staten Island, worked by Othmar H. Ammann from 1959 to 1964. Its 4,260-foot 1,298-meter primary traverse was, until the point when the finish of the Humber Bridge in 1981, the longest on the planet. The twofold decked, six-path wide roadway, 228 ft above mean high water at midpoint, is upheld by four links swung from towers 690 ft high. The links themselves weigh about 10,000 tons each; the roadway 60,000 tons. An astoundingly costly building venture to a great extent as a result of the issue of land procurement, its aggregate cost was $325 million.
