    The definite Article - use and omission with certain buildings

    Hello,

    this is a great forum by the way!

    I'd appreciate some tips on the use/omission of the definite article when talking about certain buildings and bridges for students whose native language does not have "the article"...

    For example, why is it:
    Tower Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge
    but: The Golden Gate bridge

    The Empire State Building, The Colosseum, The Embankment
    but: Tower of London (?) or Waterloo Station, Charing Cross

    The Omission of the definite article will end the superiority of those things with time and the use will allot them a new angle.
    So, hard task to complete

    waiting for your comments and way to solve the problem.
