Could Woody Allen have even made "Manhattan" without the Brooklyn Bridge? It has basically become a character in the American story.

Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, and dozens of other well-known painters have incorporated it into their works, as have photographers (Walker Evans); documentarians (Ken Burns); playwrights (Arthur Miller); novelists (Henry Miller); newspaper columnists (Jimmy Breslin); urban historians (Lewis Mumford); poets (Jack Kerouac); and musicians (Wyclef Jean). It likewise has had a slew of TV shows and movie cameos, including “The Docks of New York,” “It Happened in Brooklyn,” “Moonstruck,” “Godzilla” and “Spider-Man.”

But fans of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge call it the most iconic bridge in the world. Its stunning color ("International Orange") and view of the Pacific Ocean are second to none. Like its East Coast cousin, the Golden Gate has been featured in many films, and destroyed spectacularly in some.
