15) Brooklyn Bridge
My lovely, though maybe misguided, brother said to me not long ago, "Kristin, do you think the George Washington Bridge is the most famous bridge in the world?"
I laughed long and hard and replied, "Dude. It's not even the most famous bridge in this city. Not even close."
That honor, of course, goes to the Brooklyn Bridge, whose gothic arches inspire more reverence in me than any of Brooklyn's religious institutions. Sorry, Jehovah's Witness Watchtower! You've got nothing on this beauty!
