the verrazano–narrows bridge

This beautiful piece of engineering art connects Staten Island and Brooklyn. It has always struck me as a majestic part of the landscape of the five boroughs of New York City. I leave you with this….interesting fact from the MTA website: Seasonal contractions and expansions of the steel cables cause the double-decked roadway to be 12 feet lower in the summer than in the winter.

  1. I hope you didn’t take this whilst driving. I should return to NYC one day and see how it has changed since my last visit in the late 1990’s. I’ve not been to this bridge before.
