F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote about the QUEENSBORO BRIDGE in “The Great Gatsby,” and Simon and Garfunkel wrote a song about it. This bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge, is close to where I live on Manhattan's Upper Eastside. I made this image last Thursday night after a short run along the East River. The bridge recently celebrated its 100th birthday.
Author Bob Singleton - “It’s really the quintessential American bridge. You get a massive feeling of the use of steel that went into that bridge. It’s a graceful bridge when you take a look at what they tried to accomplish, and it’s an iconic symbol of the city. It’s been in movies from ‘Dead End’ in the ’30s to ‘Spider-Man.’ But it’s very unassuming as it goes about its work.”
