« CONFESSION OF A DISLOYALIST • BLOG-MORPH | Main | FROM THE ARCHIVES: Walking the St. George Waterfront »

May 23, 2009


I liked your use of the word 'muscular.' I'm used to seeing the bridge from a distance, often lighted; and from that perspective, it's all form, and the structural elements recede.

But after the other day, walking around up there with those steel members flying out at odd angles over my head, I think I know what you mean.

Looming in the background is the possibility, as I'm sure you know, that we may lose the bridge, or that it may be 'renovated' to serve the needs of commerce so that it's permanently disfigured.

What I noticed up there the other day, along with the 75th anniversary banners, was an awful lot of rust.

The Bayonne Bridges muscular profile makes it one of the most handsome bridges in the City.
