I allowed myself to work on one of your photographs, by hoping that you like the result

Beautiful pictures. The New York City skyline never ceases to amaze and inspire me.

Fantastic photo, Edward!;)

That is a nice shot..I like the fact that you have used the bridge to frame the top of your picture. It adds the element of depth to it.. Only the skyline and the two trees would definitely be a less desirable one.. Awesome..

Love the way Trump stands out in that last pic. Definitely not a plateau skyline in this view. Need more supertalls.

SHORPY (http://www.shorpy.com/) has an enormous shot (http://www.shorpy.com/node/10004?size=_original) of the QB from 1909, looking east across the river with the New York Architectural Terra Cotta Works (http://www.flickr.com/photos/emilio_guerra/5326474115/in/photostream/) building down below ...

Over the River: 1909 (http://www.shorpy.com/node/10004)

New York circa 1909. "East River and Blackwell's Island Bridge,"
a.k.a. the Queensboro Bridge or the 59th Street Bridge,
around the time of its completion.

an enormous shot (http://www.shorpy.com/node/10004?size=_original) of the QB from 1909 New York circa 1909 ... around the time of its completion.
We now have slick glass buildings in the shape of slugs and ski slopes, and we have shiny reclads galore, but New York was better then because it had intimacy. Buildings huddled in sensational gaggles such as you could find in 1909 at the Queens end of the bridge.

Better than a park.

(Especially one full of towers.)

That is one stunning shot, showcasing the wonderfully patterned steelwork. Nice to see the New York Architectural Terra Cotta Works complete as opposed to its current sad remains (http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22256&p=319430&viewfull=1#post319430). Thanks for posting, Lofter :).

Those first shots are terrific. I love the way the lights are so clear. Great camera and photographer.

The Queensboro Bridge? Oh! You mean the Ed Koch :(
Fantastic picture. Looking at it, though, I'm struck with the finials: how long did they last in that iteration?

March 8th, 2011, 03:25 AM
"Let's go across the Koch" just sounds ....

Hey, quick question: was there a lot of vibration on the Queensboro? If you've ever been on the Manhattan Bridge, is it similar?
