History in Brooklyn wall murals

Obviously, Brooklyn’s growth was always intertwined with New York City’s growth. What was once a small town, Brooklyn’s population suddenly doubled to nearly 80,000 between 1840 and 1845 due to the the first major wave of European immigrants. As a matter of fact, in 1855, nearly half of Brooklyn’s 205,000 residents were foreign-born. Half were Irish and the rest were divided evenly between families from Britain and Germany. Merely 5 years later, Brooklyn had become the third largest city in the United States! You can still see the influence of these settlers in some Brooklyn wall murals, in terms of architecture and aesthetic. Ferries used to transport more than 32 million passengers per year from Brooklyn Heights to lower Manhattan, but eventually the demands for transportation could not be sustained and in 1865 The New York Bridge Company was founded to construct the Brooklyn Bridge. This project was completed in 1883 and obviously still stands today, as seen in many of our Brooklyn wall murals.
