Brooklyn Bridge opened to traffic in 1883 and became one of the most photographed bridges in the world. The bridge's two suspension towers are 278 feet tall. They are built of limestone, granite, and Rosendale cement. The granite blocks were quarried and shaped on Vinalhaven Island, Maine, under a contract with the Bodwell Granite Company, and delivered from Maine to New York by schooner. The Manhattan tower contains 46,945 cubic yards of masonry, while the Brooklyn tower has 38,214 cubic yards of masonry.
