Extinction Level Event: 25 Landmarks Destroyed in Film and TV

Williamsburg Bridge (as destroyed in The Dark Knight Rises)

City: New York
Also Destroyed In: n/a

Hipsters and Hasids alike will tell you that Williamsburg is the greatest place in Brooklyn; Chris Nolan disagrees.

When Hollywood gets the jones to destroy a New York bridge, they typically go for the Brooklyn Bridge. But if Hollywood moves along the path of Brooklyndom (which is the path of hipsterdom to the world at large), filmmakers will blow up the Williamsburg Bridge for the next several years because it will be the hip thing to do. Then, several years after that, they will go back to the Brooklyn Bridge, but this time they will destroy it ironically.

You read it here first: The Dark Knight Rises is a hipster film.
