纽约人庆祝威廉斯堡桥 (Williamsburg Bridge) 正式开放

你有没有坐过马车呢?你能想像在上下班尖峰时刻时,大家都是搭着马车,而不是坐汽车过桥的情景吗?威廉斯堡桥是为了马匹与马车,以及行人和脚踏车所兴建的最后几座桥之一。在19031219日,纽约人庆祝威廉斯堡桥正式开放,这是第二座跨越「东河」 (East River) 的悬浮桥。 (布鲁克林桥是第一座) 。现在人们是怎么通过这座桥的呢?

Have you ever ridden in a horse-drawn carriage? Can you imagine what it would be like to cross a bridge during rush hour with everyone in a carriage instead of an automobile? The Williamsburg Bridge was one of the last major bridges built for the horse and carriage, as well as for pedestrians and bicyclists. On December 19, 1903, New Yorkers celebrated the opening of the Williamsburg Bridge, the second suspension bridge to span the East River. (The Brooklyn Bridge was the first.) How is the bridge used today?
