The Verrazano Narrows Bridge was finished at the end of 1964. It connects the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island. Even after 50 years, it is still a marvel of engineering. It is still the longest suspension bridge in the United States and the sixth longest in the world. It is 13,700 feet long, more than two and a half miles.
Gay Talese, who was just starting at the New York Times at the time, closely followed the building of the bridge. Soon after it opened, he wrote a story about the people involved, from the workers high up on the beams to the backroom deals that moved whole neighborhoods to make room for the bridge. The Bridge is still a great story about politics and courage, showing how good of a reporter and storyteller Talese is. The new edition is beautifully packaged and has dozens of stunning photos and architectural drawings. His moving story will help mark the 50th anniversary of the bridge and captivate a new generation of readers.
