Looking west towards downtown from Scarborough, an eastern suburb. The Scarborough Bluffs are in the foreground.

That 1st photo is so iconic. New York hit the a home run with the ESB and lucked out with that gift from France. Those are 2 structures I'm very envious of. Message to France: New France is still waiting for their statue......

And then they built a suspension bridge longer than the Golden Gate. I think a lot of people don't realize that because the Golden Gate Bridge has been so iconic for so many years.

It goes to show that something doesn't need to be the oldest, biggest, tallest, or largest to be the most well known. Where it's located and what the media latch on to shape fame and notoriety to a large degree. The Golden Gate and Verrazano-Narrows aren't even in the top 10 longest suspension bridges.

True, but the longest suspension bridge on the North American continent is right in the City of New York, both sides of it, and I don't think many people know that.
