Cross this beautiful old Brooklyn Bridge sibling and enjoy the nice views as you walk over to Kentucky
Fantastic piece of history and great way to get across the Ohio River by foot. Wonderful views of the Cincy skyline and beautiful Covington historic district on the KY side.
Makes an interesting noise when people drive over it.
Raymond, Charlie and Susanna drive across the Roebling Suspension Bridge on their way into Cincinnati in Rain Man.
This historical Ohio River bridge connecting Cincinnati to Covington, Ky., was made famous in the 1988 movie “Rain Man.”
I know the mayor and he is amazing!
The new lights on the bridge create excellent stars when you photograph them using a narrow aperture (~f/16 and above) on your camera. That means you'll need a longer exposure (and thus a tripod).
For the best photos: pick a spot near the Covington pier and shoot north toward the Cincinnati skyline. Shoot at sunset and underexpose by a few stops to get the lights just right.
At 1,057', it was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it opened on 12/1/1866. Photo from construction in 1865. From the collection of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
