Skywatch Friday

This is the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, which
connects the Bronx (duh) and Queens. The
two towers were built in a mere 18 days.
When the bridge opened 70 years ago, the
toll was 25 cents. It's now $5.50. And so
it goes . . .

  10. Beautiful shot of the bridge and the sky. great photo.

  11. Beautiful photograph Alexa. A great inspiration for a painting. I have been to NYC and I must admit the bridges are impressive, but the tolls... are pretty high. At the time I was living in San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge toll was a lot cheaper. lol.

    As the boyfriend {a New Yorker} says everything cost more in New York. But after all...

    New York City Is The Greatest City In The World.

    What do want/expect he's a New Yorker. LOL

    Once again thats a great image.
