The Manhattan Bridge connects Manhattan with Brooklyn and it is across the bridge where Yankee Stadium is located. The bridge was completed in 1909 and represented a trend of many suspension bridges that would be built in the twentieth century.
The Manhattan Bridge is shown in a brief scene when John McClane and Zeus Carver drive the pickup truck to the edge of the bridge and spot Simon's Barge. The two throw a hook connected to a cable and slowly crawl their way through. However, the cable splits from the truck and both men grab on tight as the cable slices through one of the ship's sentries Gunther.
