That broken bridge shot made me think of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Just me?
Nope, me too.
I didn't. AFAIK, the broken bridge doesn't have enough support columns to be the Brooklyn Bridge. The BSG bridge had only one pylon, sticking out of the water, holding it up. The Brooklyn Bridge has two, side by side. If I had a screenshot, I could explain this more clearly.

You explained it just fine.

The second pylon could have crumbled away. Those ruins looked like they could have been ther for centuries.

I don't think that happened either. If there ever was a second pylon, there was absolutely no trace of it left - and the BSG bridge wasn't wide enough to need one, anyway.
