A Rainy Day on the Roebling

Sept. 17, 2018

I’m not exactly sure when #RoeblingWednesday became a thing.

On Wednesday of every week my Instagram feed is flooded with photos of the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge shared and re-shared by people living in Greater Cincinnati.

The Roebling spans the Ohio River, connecting Cincinnati, Ohio and Covington, Kentucky.

When opened on Jan. 1, 1867, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world with a 1,057 feet main span. It was also a precursor to the more-famous Brooklyn Bridge, also designed by John A. Roebling.

If you browse for the #RoeblingWednesday on Instagram, it’s pretty easy to see why the hashtag is so popular in Cincinnati. Do you have a similar social media hashtag dedicated to an iconic piece of architecture in your town?
