Without further ado, Zuki's Manhattan Bridge project.
|3D - cool, right?|
Daddy came up with the "shadow box" idea but Zuki totally wrote the Manhattan Bridge sign on top. With glitter pen, I might add. That's craftsman right there.
In the event that the project gets picked by a psychotic pigeon on the way to school, here is the composition unedited, meaning spelling mistooks and all.
The Manhattan Bridge was opened on December 31, 1909. It was designed by Leon Moiseef.
The original designer of the Manhattan Bridge was Gustav Lindthal. He was fired from the job. But they used many of his ideas. Lindthal's idea was to make the bridge flexable to carry trains.
Moiseef's design was not as good as Lindthal. The Manhattan Bridge was underbuilt.
The trains made the Manhattan Bridge very dangerous to cross. The city wanted to close the bridge and make another way to cross the river. But they decided to reconstruct it.
Reconstruction took a very long time. The work began in the 1980's and ended in 2007. The Mattan Bridge celebrated its 100th birthday in october 2009.
The Manhattan Bridge is an inportant part of New York City. Everybody should see the Manhattan Bridge. Why? Because trains run over it."
Seriously, I only helped a little. Do you like how the original designer was "fired" from his job? It's pure Zuki.
