Brooklynbridgebury

The Ken Burns documentary on the Brooklyn Bridge strikes home the point that the BB has inspired a Bloomsbury-like intellectual and artistic climate of artists, poets, musicians, philosophers, and photographers the likes of Georgia O’Keefe,Joseph Stella, Hart Crane, Frank Sinatra, Lewis Mumford, Walker Evans and Edward Steichen.  All these creative individuals have been inspired over the years by what Arthur Miller calls the “steel poetry” of an unpresumptuous monument which does its job and carries its load every day.
