A massive structure. Your photo adds to the wonderful variety of bridge styles this month.

Awesome, Ming, awesome! Love it.

slinger said...

Very nice, I didn't realize they kept part of the old bridge as part of the new one.

Jilly said...

What an impressive bridge and I love that you've made it so personal with people walking on it.

Felicia said...

Great perspective. You had some tough choices to make about which bridge too!

~tanty~ said...

Very impressive!
Happy theme day :)

Ben said...

Very nice, indeed.

Isadora said...

:) This is really lovely. What a massive structure sitting over the bridge - is that to supervise?

alice said...

I wish I could climb on this little bridge right at the top, the view must be beautiful! Have a good weekend, Ming.

Mike said...

Majestic!

Keropok Man said...

Nice!

You can feel the massiveness of this structure from this view.

I can also imagine the traffic sound beside it. I presume next to it is where cars zoom past. :-)


Happy Theme Day!

Good choice from all the NYC bridges! Makes my photo of a cycle bridge slightly insignificant. :)

GMG said...

Between Brooklyn and Queensborough, I thought you would choose QBorough... I've to bet on lotto today... ;))
Enjoy your weekend!

I love the New York bridges. In those days they knew how to build monuments.

oldmanlincoln said...

It is massive. It is like a monument.

16 Ghosts on Bridge?

maria elisa said...

It looks big.

:)

Bergson said...

The bridge was not made by the funny ones; a bridge of mason!!

Rambling Round said...

they just don't make bridges like this anymore! Superb!

Annie said...

It's a marvel!

Strangetastes said...

Your blog has become nostalgiaville for me. Even as a child I remember thinking this looked like a cathedral and was more impressive to me than St. Patrick's.

The STL CDPB theme day post has a quiz and a contest. Do stop by and enter.

Love the perspective.

isabella said...

That's sooo New York!

Kim said...

Ming, what a great choice for theme day. I've seen this bridge in films before but never knew what it was. Love your shot of it!

a charming walkway - Hyde DP is carrying permalinks to the bridge posts and will be updated at intervals until Dec 2nd.

It is a spectacular bridge. Good thing there's a foot path.

I like this very much!

Wow, that's great. First what a dedication: you climb up there to get this view? Second, the contrast between the old metal and the new metal almost looks as if one part of the picture was in b&w while the other was kept in color. Great effect!.
