George Washington Bridge from Historic Park by 

This photo was taken from Fort Lee Historic Park, Fort Lee, NJ. © jc warburton 09, Nikon D90,Nikkor 18-200mm 1:3.5 – 5.6 VR lens.

The GWB, upper level, opened for traffic on Oct. 25th, 1931. The lower level, referred to as “Martha”, LOL, was opened in 1962. It’s a beautiful suspension bridge connecting Washington Heights, Bronx, New York to Fort Lee, New Jersey.

There’s a walkway on the north and south side of this suspension bridge and it’s not a walk for the faint of heart. The guard rail comes up just a bit higher than waist level and it’s not solid. I could actually imagine a small child slipping through and falling off this bridge.

You can’t take any bridge photos while on the bridge except at the halfway mark. There’s security at both ends, in the middle, and an officer on a bicycle who goes back and forth.

The bridge is owned and run by the Port Authority of New York, New Jersey.

Though I take the occasional photo for posterity’s sake, patterns, shapes and textures are what I really love to photograph. I hope you enjoy my photos and stop back.
