Description
Built in the late 19th century, the Brooklyn Bridge is the most iconic and oldest major bridge of New York, and is as much an icon as the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building. It was built in Neo-Gothic style, much like many other New York buildings of the time. The Brooklyn Bridge had fears a year after opening of stability issues, so PT Barnum famously lead 21 elephants from his Circus across the bridge. Ingame, the Brooklyn Bridge causes your empire to enter a 10-turn Golden Age, and gives +50% Great Person generation in the city it is built; it requires Railroad

Requires the Gods & Kings expansion pack, and credit to co-author Sukritact for the icon

Actually, Freeasabird, at the time of its opening (24 May 1883) and for several years after, it was a modern wonder of the world. It not only was the longest suspension bridge in the world but was 50% longer than any previously built. This was primarily due to John A. Roebling's patented wirerope design.

Culture is in Vanilla, just not faith. But here I will test alot of your "Gods and Kings" tagged wonders and let you know the results. If they work then post "Vanilla compatable" somewhere so other would be duped Vanilla players can also enjoy your many awesome wonder mods.

I haven't actually tested it with Vanilla, it could work still. It just won't provide culture

Pouakai, keep up the great work. Love your Wonders and usually run about 8-10 different ones in my games.

Well then it's a good thing this is a mod, isn't it? The best thing about mods is that if you don't like it you don't need to download it, so each person can have their own definition of what a wonder is or isn't
