The 59th st bridge is the ugly ducking of the four large span bridges that spans the East River. All the other ones are suspension bridges and the canter lever bridge is the odd ball on the east river. The Harlem river you get all the draw bridges.

Nice series on a bridge that most people forgets about, it is actually not a bad looking bridge.

I got no deeds to do,
no promises to keep.

I'm dappled and drowsy
and ready to sleep.

Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love ya,
All is groovy.


Paul Simon wrote that he actually wrote that song coming home one morning from an...um... overnight. Must have been a good one.

The last one shows the least bridge, but I like it best. Full of life, and great light.
