Bridges take us from one place to another. The join areas which were once separated. They symbolize the desire to be together. Building bridges opens doors. This Manhattan bridge doesn’t get the stardom that it’s nearby sister, the Brooklyn Bridge, receives but it’s the workhorse bridge. As cars and people traverse it, every five or so the bridge rumbles and announces the next train transporting people across the waterways from one boro to the other. Emerging from the tunnels of Manhattan to suddenly be riding high across the water on the D-Train is quite an exciting moment the first time. Quickly you descend into Brooklyn and the journey continues.
There is so much architectural beauty in front of us here in New York. We tend to not see it, or only see it repeatedly from the same angle so it becomes lost to our vision. Ho hum.
