And while Mr. entwife often speaks in general terms, my intention is to be specific…as specific as possible. So while ‘skyscraper’ may be a good answer, the intended answer is, “Which skyscraper?” And with limited exceptions when I have a place or a thing in mind it is one which I have actually seen, visited, or owned. That is not a great limitation, though, since I have been blessed with the privilege of being a very well-traveled individual thanks to careers in the Navy, Merchant Marine, or behind the wheel of long-haul trucks. With that said…
I span the waters in this my capital city,
a sight not all have agreed is pretty!
Although small by modern standards I am
recognized far and wide throughout the lands.
I unite the banks but open wide,
for sailing ships traveling on the tide.
Marvels of engineering Victorian,
tourists observe in my museum.
Hard by my namesake keep I stand,
bridging the gap between land and land.
What am I?
