The Brooklyn Bridge is a bridge in New York City and is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River.

Devil's Elbow, Missouri is one of the prettiest places on Route 66 in my opinion. There's a lot of history in this area of Route 66 in the Ozarks. The community got its start back in 1870 and was named for a particularly bad bend in the Big Piney River. Lumberjacks would float logs down the river and they would seem to always jam at this place.  Built 1923; made obsolete by new US 66 bridge in 1942.  This Two-span through truss bridge rises over Big Piney River at Devils Elbow.
