To honor the 125th anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge, New York City threw a celebration fitting for the illustrious landmark. During the five-daylong Memorial Day Weekend celebration, the historic bridge was illuminated with 26 syncrolites and kicked off with a public party with Grucci fireworks, a program with Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, and performances by Marvin Hamlisch and the Brooklyn Philharmonic.
