History

Brooklyn, New York is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, The Brooklyn Bridge. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.

THE HISTORY

Construction started in 1870 and was designed by Washington Robling, but between numerous controversies and the novelty of the design, the construction took over thirteen years. It has undergone several reconfigurations, having carried horse-drawn vehicles and elevated railway lines until 1950. It has been renovated several times, with significant renovations in the 1950s, 1980s, and 2010s. 

THE HAUNTINGS

The tragic history of the bridge may explain the paranormal activity. It is said that over 20 workers died during the bridge’s construction and when the bridge opened in 1883, rumors of a collapse caused a stampede, which killed 12 people. It is also a common suicide site.

A headless apparition, thought to be a worker beheaded when a cable snapped during construction, has been reported. Some see shadowy figures floating across the bridge and others report screams and the sound of splashing water.
