The Eagle published an essay and several photos sent by William Horeis, who grew up in Bay Ridge. As a young man working for some local papers (including a resurrected Brooklyn Eagle), Horeis took some amazing photos of the Verrazano Bridge while it was still under construction in 1963 and '64. He climbed all the way to the top of the Brooklyn tower! (See photo). Click Below.
