Nice photos - but do not accurately depict the "look" of the bridge as one is walking over/thru it. I will take photos of what I see as I walk over it tomorrow and post them here: this will be intersting.
The tribecca bridge has a multitude of "nooks and crannies" for lack of a better term - so it gets more gunked-up the other types of structures. So the result being that a somewhat new bridge looks "crappy".
EXample - Remember the pedestrian bridge crossing over Vesey street into the world trade center area - a tubular stainless steel structure all smooth surface, no complex/intricat surfaces. That bridge looked good as new many years after it was built. That is the point I am trieng to make about considering ROM issues when doing nyc architecture.
Well, I will photo the bridge tomorrow cause from what I remember it looks pretty CRAPPY for something only about 14 years old. I will post them on this thread.
