The New York Times Spotlights The Forgotten Woman Who Built the Brooklyn Bridge

Today the Brooklyn Bridge is among the most iconic architectural marvels in the world. Built of limestone, granite, and cement, the nearly 6,000-foot suspension bridge transports roughly 144,000 vehicles across its span every day. It’s remarkable, in 2018, to think that such a reliable structure was achieved 135 years ago. When the Brooklyn Bridge opened on May 24, 1883, it was the longest suspension bridge (in fact, nothing really came close to it in length). For such an architectural achievement to be realized, 14 years of construction by some 600 workers (an estimated 27 of whom died in the process) had to occur. Sure, the design of the bridge is what we marvel at today (and rightfully so!), but what’s less appreciated is the day-to-day management involved in constructing such a complex and revolutionary structure. And who would’ve known that at the center of this intense job was a female by the name of Emily Warren Roebling.

In the spirit of International Women’s Day, The New York Times launched a new channel dubbed Overlooked, a project to cover obituaries of women who never received them (the newspaper company plans to continue this new channel throughout the year while expanding it to introduce others who were overlooked, most notably people of color).
