In A day in the Bronx, an article says the Bronx Whitestone bridge was awarded a prize for being a most beautiful bridge in 1940. But it was felt the bridge swayed to much in crosswinds, so trusses were added. WW2 slowed down the process and it wasn't completed until 1947. It was much less attractive after the trusses were added.
