An interesting account of the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. Ken Burns' first documentary created at age 24 and received a 1982 Academy Award nomination in the Best Documentary category.

I didn't think it was possible for Ken Burns to make a boring documentary. I was wrong.

Interesting doc, very detailed.
Good for any history buff who likes the structures of the world.
Excellent for anybody who has lived in New York.

To much of the Brooklyn Bridge and not enough on the history of it. Not one of Ken Burns better jobs and McCullough will put you to sleep on this one.
