The 5 Busiest Bridges in Brooklyn

New York is a port town, the boroughs separated and cut up by rivers, creeks, canals, straits, and other waterways. That means we’re also a city of bridges (and tunnels, and ferries); 2.7 million vehicles crossed a bridge in New York City every day in 2010, according to Department of Transportation data, and there are 19 bridges with at least one ramp in Brooklyn that accommodate several hundreds of thousands of vehicles every day. Which are the busiest? Not necessarily the most iconic ones—that is, the ones you might expect.
