Today I got a nice postcard from the USA! The postcard shows a view of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges with the iconic New York City skyline in the background. The Manhattan Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the East River in order to connect Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. Its total length is about two kilometres and it has a clearance of about 450 metres. It has seven lanes of roadways and several subway lines. The postcard was sent by Valérie of France who went on vacation there. Thanks Valérie!
