Bonus: There Was a Sculpture of Her Figure Beneath the Bridge
In Anchorage Plaza on Old Fulton Street and Front Street, you can usually see a sculpture dedicated to the three Roeblings. The statue depicts the silhouettes of John, Washington, and Emily gazing up at their work. At this time, the statue has been removed while work is being done to the plaza. It is unclear if and when the sculpture will return.
