Yes, Tulsa has bridges.....Arkansas river runs through it.....but to my amazement there's never any water in it. This is not a slam against Ttown....I really enjoyed living there. But I grew up in Pgh.... lots of bridges (pictures of them on my office wall)....but they happen to have rivers with water under them!!!

How about the Seven Mile Bridge in the Keys......love this one.

I'm sure New York is a given. Any ideas for smaller cities, however?

The Arkansas River is being dammed....with low water dams which is going to solve the problem of having such a ugly eye sore running through Tulsa in times of "no rain fall" i've been living in California for i'll say 27 -28 years and everytime that I come back out to Tulsa The River Is Full To The Brim......By the way i've never been in "Pittsburgh PA" and it slipped my mind..I got to make it there , they say that it has so many "beautiful Bridges"...

The Brooklyn Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge are probably those most well known U.S. bridges.

Why do you make things up?

Roebling was a Pittsburgher. The only thing he did in Cincinnati was build a bridge for you. Don't you research anything before you start typing?

Well, I guess I was wrong; I had heard or read many years ago that Roebling was from Cincinnati. I also didn't realize Roebling (the father) didn't actually see construction of the Brooklyn Bridge through to completion; though he designed the bridge, he in fact died over a decade before it was completed.

I will say that if you are going to correct me, you might want to be correct yourself - if the wikipedia.org article is correct, he was from Germany, didn't move to the U.S. until he was 25 years old, and lived in Butler County, PA, which although it is close to Pittsburgh is NOT Pittsburgh.

Michignan has 2 really neat bridges.

1. Detroit's ambassador bridge is really nice. especially when its lighted up at night. it's the only bridge that goes SOUTH to Windsor, Ontario. I believe Detroit is the only city thats geographically north of Canada.

2. Mackinac birdge is about 5 miles long, and its a beauty. All I've seen is pictures, never got a chance to go up there, but i would love to go see it someday. It be a good trip to go to the Northern Pennsula, it has really nice scenery of what I've seen.

Colorado has an intersesting bridge, the Royal Gorge over the Arkansas. I havent seen that either, but I've heard lots about it.

Columbus, Indiana has a nice ones too. ones an interstate over pass actually.

Note: Columbus is ranked 6th most architectual city in the U.S.
