Summary:
No one had every used steel for construction; no one had ever used cables of metal; no one had ever built a suspension bridge so long ... until one man dared to try. In 19th century New York, where buildings were no more than five stories tall and transportation meant horse and buggy, engineer John Roebling's soaring and majestic Brooklyn Bridge was nothing short of a technological miracle.
