The Low Span of High Heeled Bridges

Catching sight of the approach spans for the Kosciuszko Bridge replacement under construction, it hit home. The new bridge is going to cross the Newtown Creek at a lower altitude than the present (c. 1938) bridge. Sad to lose that magnificent, if brief (depending on traffic conditions), westward view of Manhattan--and more limited eastward one of the Newtown Industrial Valley. Enjoy it while we have it, pothole (trenches) and all.
