The Brooklyn Museum is one of the largest in the USA. Brooklyn was once a separate city bang opposite the East River from Manhattan Island (first joined to Manhattan by Mrs. Roebling's bridge). It was merged with four other counties (boroughs) to create the City of New York with physical connections provided by railroad and road bridges and tunnels. The last connecting bridge in New York City spanned the Verrazano Narrows between Long Island and Staten Island in 1964.
