Fascinating! They are building bridges all over these days. This is the new Goethals bridge connecting Staten Island with New Jersey. The old bridge was really narrow. I mean really! It was barely wide enough for a car. So you can imagine passing an 18 wheel tractor trailer truck on the bridge. That is not for the faint hearted. I’m not; so I passed lots of trucks in my day. The style is now about towers that lean out. I never knew bridge building could be so dated and architecturally interesting.
