Lovingly Maintained

BRT has waxed poetic about the problems of infrastructure and why it's so important to the wellbeing of the country for infrastructure to be ongoing and not left for dead, something that's becoming a national scandal/crisis as we watch an inept congress vote for never ending war at the expense of this once great nation. With this rant in mind, there is at least one exception to the rule, the 59th Street bridge in Manhattan, a favorite of yours truly as the bridge is a wonder of mechanical engineering writ large as seen by the pictures taken last year during travels on the East Side in Oct of '14. If only other bridges were treated with as much respect and affection as this one is something often thought of every time I see these images of tech done right to the max. Enjoy.
