How the Verrazano Bridge Changed the City

Video explores the changes the Verrazano-Narrows bridge, which connects Brooklyn to Staten Island, brought (and still is bringing) to NYC when it was completed in the 1960s. It changed the face of development on both sides in Brooklyn and Staten Island – removing neighborhoods in Brooklyn, and spurning new ones in Staten Island.  The video’s narrator comments that the Staten Island county – Richmond, is the fastest growing in New York State.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
