Is the Golden Gate Bridge the world’s longest suspension bridge?

From 1937 to 1964 the Golden Gate Bridge was the world’s longest suspension bridge at 4,200 feet long. On November 21, 1964, New York’s Verrazano Narrows Bridge was opened at 60 feet longer than the Golden Gate Bridge. 

The Verrazano was the longest single span suspension bridge until July 17, 1981 when the Humber Bridge in England was opened at a length of 4,626 feet.
