The 124-year old bridge connecting the borough of Brooklyn with lower Manhattan is only one of two of New York City’s 2,027 bridges to fail its most recent inspection.

"The poor condition means there's components of the bridge. They are the approaches, and of the approach it's the bridge deck and some joints," said Lori Ardito of the New York City Department of Transportation. "Again, it is safe, but it just means that those components need to be rehabilitated."
