The improbable story of the man who helped make mobility possible in America over the past century. A Swiss engineer who emigrated to the US, Othmar H. Ammann designed the most daring structures and the iconic bridges that would determine the appearance of New York, among them the George Washington Bridge, Verrazano Narrows Bridge and Bayonne Bridge. Gateways to New York is a breathtaking account of the adventurous life of a brilliant engineer and a portrait of an era in which the automobile changed the face of the US definitively. Moreover, the story of the native Mohawk people in particular sticks in the mind, as the only people willing to work at spine-chilling heights.
