The Manhattan Bridge connects Manhattan with Brooklyn and it is across the bridge where Yankee Stadium is located. The bridge was completed in 1909 and represented a trend of many suspension bridges that would be built in the twentieth century.

Die Hard with a Vengeance[]

The Manhattan Bridge is shown in a brief scene when John McClane and Zeus Carver drive the pickup truck to the edge of the bridge and spot Simon's Barge. The two throw a hook connected to a cable and slowly crawl their way through. However, the cable splits from the truck and both men grab on tight as the cable slices through one of the ship's sentries, Gunther. This is inaccurate. Simon’s barge is in the Long Island Sound, the Manhattan Bridge crosses the East River. Also, McClane calls the Bridgeport Coast Guard, the bridge Zeus and McClane spot the barge from is a fictional bridge located somewhere near Bridgeport, Connecticut.
