"Build bridges, not walls." This line early became a mantra for those opposed to President Trump's xenophobic and isolationist policies. However, as the differences between the major political parties have become starker and more polarized over the past four years, bridging the divide and putting differences aside has become more fraught than ever.

But while metaphorical bridges have become more challenging, New York's physical bridges are perhaps more appreciated than ever. They have long served as destinations for exercise, pleasure, and photography, and many New Yorkers took to the bridges on foot or bike in an effort to avoid public transportation at the height of the pandemic. Indeed, former transportation commissioner Sam Schwartz has proposed a pedestrians and cyclists-only bridge to connect Queens to Manhattan.

In the meantime, the five boroughs are connected by bridges. Some people make day trips to view and cross them, but some New Yorkers are lucky enough to enjoy the sight from their living room or bedroom windows.
