Practical Grandeur: The Making of the

Brooklyn Bridge

A fully immersive, mobile audio tour across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Now an iconic feature of the New York City skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge was once thought of as impossible- a fool’s errand. The men who built it- and the woman who spurred it along- were hailed as heroes across the country, their sacrifices landing them alongside martyrs of the church. Walk through the bridge’s 14 year construction history- commune with the beyond, attend a post-Prohibition soiree beneath the roadway, and stroll across a footbridge 200 feet above the water.

Practical Grandeur was written and produced by Rebecca Chaisson.

This tour has advanced features. You'll need the app to begin exploring.
