Recommended Posts

Liberty Bridge, the mighty span linking Brooklyn and Staten Island was originally going to be called. That was back in 1928.

I love the Verrazano-Narrows bridge. It's a rather majestic and beautiful bridge to photograph. I love seeing it every time I cross or walk on 5th Avenue.

Great bridge. I have friends drive me to Queens when returning from playing cricket in Staten Island and I love the part when crossing from Staten Island to Brooklyn over the bridge.
