Rollin' Down the Roebling Bridge

The model for the Brooklyn Bridge, this is the Roebling Bridge that connects Covington, KY to downtown Cincinnati (my hometown!) I absolutely adore this bridge. The colors, construction and the fact that I can walk on it freely without bumping into a million people like on the Brooklyn one. Here's a brief history:


"The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge spans the Ohio River between Cincinnati, Ohio and Covington, Kentucky. When the first pedestrians crossed on December 1, 1866, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world at 1,057 feet (322 m) main span."
