This is a tripodless capture of the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges viewed from South Street Seaport’s Pier 17. As the nation reacted with shock to the recent deadly bridge collapse in Minnesota, Gov. Eliot Spitzer ordered stepped-up inspections of 49 deck truss bridges in the state including NYC’s Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, Queensboro Bridge, Marine Parkway Bridge, 145th Street Bridge, West 207th Street Bridge and bridges on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and Major Deegan Expressway. Some of the city bridges have been ranked only fair to poor in a recent survey by the Department of Transportation. The Brooklyn Bridge received a ranking of poor, and needs work on its ramps.
