about this painting:
Brooklyn Bridge 1
Crossing East River
Leonid Afremov invites you to visit one of the main attractions of not only New York but also of all of America – the Brooklyn Bridge connecting the two parts of the Big Apple. Undoubtedly, this is one of the most famous bridges in the world, connecting two districts of New York – Manhattan and Brooklyn. In Leonid Afremov's painting we see how an intensive flow of cars is moving along it, we see their bright yellow lights, they merge together resembling some fairy-tale train that flies towards the lights of the night city. In fact, the Brooklyn Bridge is designed not only for cars, it is equipped with one more floor for cyclists and pedestrians.
The artist masterfully depicted the night city – night lights are in surprising harmony with the colors of the night sky, painting it in yellow, red and orange colors – these Bright colors are favorite ones of the author. As we see, with their help, he is able to portray not only the autumn landscape, but they are also great for conveying the mood of the night city, especially such a lively and full of life as New York. The artist also managed to convey the massiveness and majesty of the city's skyscrapers, one of the main component of the city, without drawing their fine details. We see a real metropolis, not closing its eyes for a second even at night – some people rush to get home after being late at work; other lovers of nightlife are looking for night adventures.
The delightful canvas of one of the most famous artists of the world will serve as a kind of reminder of the majesty of one of the most famous and vibrant cities in the world – New York. And if you have not visited it yet, buying this painting will be an additional reason for you to do so.

The Brooklin Bridge, depicted in many paintings by numerous famous artists, holds many secrets and little-known facts. The 3 most interesting of them are in our list:
- The idea of a bridge linking Manhattan and Brooklyn was considered a few years before the actual construction began. The first proposal for the creation of the bridge was announced as early as in 1800.
