Check out this fantastic drone video of New York's Manhattan Bridge, comliments of top contributor thedronalist.  Opened in 1909, the suspension bridge spans the East River a bit upstream of the Brooklyn Bridge, which opened a quarter-century earlier.  Utilizing a then-novel civil engineering principal, the bridge's longest span is 451 meters or just under 1.5k ft.  The video features some incredible footage of the bridge's most distinctive architectural feature: the large arch which marks its Manhattan side entrance.
