NYC Bridges thread

Recommended Posts

Pictures of the most popular bridge in the city, the longest bridge in the city, the most important bridge in the city, and the busiest bridge in the city respectively. The latter two are celebrating their 100th anniversaries:

Nice.

 

Funny, all of them could be modified to handle rail (or do all ready or have in the past), or a different pattern of lanes and traffic.

 

I am partial to the QB and the VN, however i also enjoy the other bridges.

These pictures would be excellent for my art, once I find the time. Would you mind if I used them, but gave you credit, Forest?

Sorry for the late reply, but I don't check this section everyday. You can use my pics.

Nice pics! I don't have many bridge shots, just a few of the Hell Gate and Triboro that I got on a foggy day. I hope to get more on a sunny evening in the summer.

It was originally planned for the BMT Broadway line to cross the Queensboro bridge into Queens, but at the last minute, it was decided to make an under water tunnel because the bridge would not be able to handle the weight of trains. That tunnel is the 60th street tube, which the (N)(R)(W) all cross to get into Queens.

Yea, it was only designed with streetcars in mind.

 

I need to get some shots of the RI bridge before the tram closes.
