John Roebling designed and built the Brooklyn Bridge as a luxury to the New York people at that time period When the river froze over one winter day in Manhattan the people walked across the river to Brooklyn and the people noticed how great it could be if they could have a bridge connecting the two islands John Roebling designed the Brooklyn Bridge in a way that he saw fit to be able to span the river Though grand in design Roebling did it for New York regardless of how the bridge is looked at now and even following its completion were the bridge is looked at as a great monument landmark and as a object of pride All of these things are great but they are really not what Roebling had in mind Roebling did not care for the honor or praise because of the great bridge he just wanted to complete the bridge and the people would be happy If Roebling was looking for praises to feed his pride than he would have stated something that would show his true motives Maybe he would have named the bridge after him or his son Washington could have named it after their company It was evident in both John and Washington Roebling that they wanted to complete the bridge to better the public but probably realizing they would receive some praise because it truly was an immense feat Both of them suffered significantly due to the bridge John his life and Washington his health neither showed pride in the bridge only pride in going to work for the community and if John had any evidence of private glory being the drive then Washington would have showed it in some way Even though Roebling built the bridge to better every day life in New York the bridge is and was looked at as more of transportation monument or The Eight Wonder of the World as it
