Verrazano2 by Coolor Foto


Verrazano2 by Coolor Foto

Taken from a moving car, from the Brooklyn side of the bridge. Hard to tell from the image that I took this from the approach that would have the car crossing the bridge from the lower roadway, which would obscure my ability to see the sky. I was so upset at the moment before taking this image, because I wanted to cross on the upper road way, so I could take in the sky and shoot to my hearts content.I don’t get the chance to take this bridge much and even more rarely to take when the sky is in the magic hour. The feeling of lost opportunity was palpable, I was irate at the driver for making the mistake.However, looking back on it, if the driver did not take this approach, I would not have been able to take this shot, from this vantage, and so this image would not exist, and I am happy it does. So I am good! 🙂 A description of this great bridge! When it opened in 1964, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge was the world’s longest suspension span. The ends of the bridge are at historic Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn and Fort Wadsworth in Staten Island, both of which guarded New York Harbor at the Narrows for over a century. The bridge was named after Giovanni da Verrazano, who, in 1524, was the first European explorer to sail into New York Harbor. Its monumental 693 foot high towers are 1 5/8 inches farther apart at their tops than at their bases because the 4,260 foot distance between them made it necessary to compensate for the earth’s curvature. Each tower weighs 27,000 tons and is held together with three million rivets and one million bolts. 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. Located at the mouth of upper New York Bay, the bridge not only connects Brooklyn with Staten Island but is also a major link in the interstate highway system, providing the shortest route between the middle Atlantic states and Long Island. In Brooklyn, the bridge connects to the Belt Parkway and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and to the largely residential community of Bay Ridge. On Staten Island, which saw rapid development after the bridge opened in 1964, it joins the Staten Island Expressway, providing access to the many communities in this most rural of the city’s five boroughs.
