The Ultimate Insider’s Brooklyn Bridge

Wednesday, May 27, 2020



Kriss Roebling, New York historian and documentarian, led a special virtual tour of the Brooklyn Bridge. The great-great-grandson of Emily and Washington Roebling, builders of the Brooklyn Bridge, Kriss will guide us through the bridge’s nooks and crannies, while sharing a wealth of family tales, insights, and heirlooms previously unknown to the public. Watch as Kriss’ stories bring the beauty and inspiring history of the bridge to life in a virtual experience not to be missed.

This event was part of Reimagining Brooklyn Bridge, a design competition presented in collaboration with the New York City Council.
