Photographer's Note

Maria’s & Serghei’s recent pictures and notes detailing a section of stone façade that fell from the Brooklyn Bridge got me to thinking about some of my own bridge pictures….and so, here we have one! Had it not been for their posted photos, I wouldn’t have known anything about the incident…it didn’t even make a blip on the news radar out West. I never even saw any mention of it on the mainstream internet news pages!?

This was taken from one of the upper levels of the shopping mall at Pier 17, which was located at South Street Seaport. From what I understand, the imposing red mall that stood there for 28 years has now been reduced to a pile of rubble, as it’s currently making way for a new shopping, dining and entertainment venue.

As I stepped outside to take a few pictures of the bridge, I noticed this lady sitting all by herself, which seemed to be the perfect addition to the view…seemingly all alone in the middle of a metropolis. I assume she was actually with someone, but her “solitary confinement” was a welcomed presence to this scene. I’ve also included a WS picture with another view of the bridge…seems like I have more pictures of this bridge then I remember. :)

Thanks for stopping by.
