Williamsburg Bridge

From the Queensboro Bridge, Loren’s friend Jack drove us down to the Williamsburg Bridge. The bridge is a suspension bridge across the East River connecting the Lower East Side of Manhattan at Delancey Street with the Williamsburg neighbourhood of Brooklyn at Broadway near the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE).

This 2227m, eight lanes bridge has two train tracks carrying the ”J” train, "M" train, and "Z" lines of the New York City Subway. There is also a path for pedestrians and bicycles. The bridge was constructed by architect, Henry Hornbostel, and designer Leffert L. Buck. It was open on December 19, 1903. That was 115 years ago!

This bridge was more challenging to photograph from the vantage point at the foot of the bridge. I walked under and around the bridge trying to get a decent image of the length of the bridge. The support pillars of the bridge are surrounded by a fence with metal spikes at the top. I stood on one of the metal barriers to get a better shot.
