    Default ROM Repair, Operating, and Maintenance issues

    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.

    To be honest, while the bridge can do well with a new paint job, it doesn't look that bad.

    I can think of a lot worse looking pedestrian bridges in the City....oh I dunno....how about EVERY FDR Drive pedestrian bridge.

    Not trying to excuse the fact that maintenance needs to be taken into account when projects are built, but this bridge looks pretty good considering it probably hasn't receieved a paint job since its construction.

    This bridge is in poor condition for a structure that is only about 12 years old: it has been - and always will be - difficult (and expensive) to maintain, operate and repair.

    This bridge is already in need of major restoration: much too soon it seems. Given its intricate "modernist" form this bridge it is going to be very expenstive to restore.

    Doing this "type" of bridge, at this "place" was just a bad idea.

    Your posts are full of inaccuracies and hyperpole. Hardly sharing info.

    Any further reponse is a waste of my time.

    This bridge seems to have gotten quite popular.

    It's lit up at night. Maybe I'll take out the tripod.

    Default who controls it?

    Does anyone know what or who controls the Tribeca Bridge? I have tried the MTA and the City's Bridge & Parks Authority but have not gotten a clear answer. Thank you.

    I love the duelling flattering/unflattering photos. When I've used the bridge iI felt neither extreme, but it does strike me as mallish and best viewed from a bit of distance...

    We should have a dedicated ugly/pretty thread. I usually look past all the grime and garbage on my daily commute, but there are days when I see nothing but. Could be a very telling thread to see who's glass-half-full and who's glass-half-empty.
