125 years ago, the founding engineers built the Brooklyn Bridge for pedestrians; complete with a Pedestrian Pricing policy of $1 per foot passenger.
“There is room for 15,000 persons on the foot path of the Brooklyn bridge. Superintendent Martin estimates that there were fully 20,000 on the bridge at one time Sunday. Anticipating a similar rash.to-day, Superintendent Martin has made arrangements to station six toll-takers to receive the money of the foot passengers alone at either end.”–NYTimes “REGULATING BRIDGE TRAVEL.; PREPARING FOR A RUSH TO-DAY-EFFECTS ON ELEVATED ROADS AND FERRIES.”–May 30, 1883
