One of the oldest suspension bridges ever built and still standing up tall and proud would be the Brooklyn Bridge on New York. Built in the year 1883, the bridge connects the Manhattan and Brooklyn borough in the state of New York. It was the foremost steel-wire suspension bridge, an ambitious project back then; and also the longest when built. The designer was a German immigrant John Augustus Roebling who is also credited to have designed the shorter suspension bridges in Pennsylvania and Cincinnati, Ohio.
But this entire great heritage it is may well be a chaotic thing to handle after all, since a suspension bridge has it cons. At morning 9:40 am the bridge was closed due to a bomb hoax, when an unidentified package caused an alarming situation. However, within about an hour, the bridge was back to its general state of use, after the security analysis revealed that the package was a harmless collection of flash lights. The intermittent closure of the bridge did cause a huge panic and set the blogs buzzing.
