Extinction Level Event: 25 Landmarks Destroyed in Film and TV

Brooklyn Bridge (as destroyed in Aftershock)

City: New York
Also Destroyed In: Cloverfield; I am Legend; Godzilla (1998); Deep Impact; and The Dark Knight Rises

The iconic Brooklyn Bridge is a symbol of America's perseverance or unity or some shit. It's been immortalized in countless works of art, including Hart Crane's eight-part opus “The Bridge.” It has also been blown up countless times, and even pimp-slapped by a monster's tail in Cloverfield (featured in 25 Inaccurate Depictions of NYC in Film and TV). It has even inspired idiotic articles on about.com, like this one and this one.
