A lane closure on the Whitestone Bridge on Monday held up traffic through the EZ Pass gates. I had the rare chance to photograph (possibly illegally) the interior of one of the observation stations at the toll plaza. The small American flag in the window facing the bridge, alas, did not come out, thanks to some icy water on the windshield.
(Note: We are not proposing the Whitestone Bridge for renaming to honor Bess Myerson. Myerson had no special link to Queens. Except that it was Donald Manes, the crooked Queens BP, who introduced her to Carl "Andy" Capasso, a key step on the road to the "Bess Mess"! Well, I don't think anyone will be renaming any bridges after Donald Manes anytime soon.)
