Verrazano Narrows - Brooklyn and Staten Island, New York, USA

Completed in 1964, the final bridge of Othmar Ammann's illustrious career, the Verrazano Narrows bridge still has the longest main span of any bridge in North America. I would be remiss if I didn't conjure the cliché: the towers are so far apart, the engineers accounted for the curvature of the Earth in their calculations.
