A view of George Washington Bridge from Upper Manhattan in the hours before Sandy made landfall shows storm clouds and winds over the Hudson River. Photo by Stuart Sia / Northattan.
The bridge is always amazing, but today was something special.
The above photo captures the odd sight of a midday Monday, with almost no traffic on the most trafficked river crossing in the world.
The only other time I can remember this happening was 9/11, and I wasn’t exactly stopping to admire the bridge at the time.
Tonight it was even more stunning. The purple (they appear pink downtown) October breast cancer awareness lights that line the twined metal ropes were shut off, leaving the structure that much more naked, raw, without the consistent cars and trucks passing over it.
No vehicles, fancy lighting, nothing.
Just pure architectural genius. I will never forget it.
