On Washington Heights: The George Washington Bridge Project


In which The Gay Recluse ponders a photograph of the George Washington Bridge and provides an interesting (and possibly depressing) fact.

Date of photograph: February 24, 2008

Notes: We were rushing out to buy donuts and didn’t notice the reflection of the window to the right. (Oh well.)

Interesting (and Possibly Depressing) Fact: The George Washington Bridge opened in October, 1931, nine months ahead of schedule.

Source of I(aPD) Fact: James Renner, Washington Heights, Inwood and Marble Hill, (Arcadia Publishing, 2007), p.68.
