Golden Bridge to MIT

Owed to Nature

Boston, United States

Artist's Description

The Mass Ave Bridge crosses the Charles River connecting Boston to Cambridge. This view is from the footbridge on the eastside of the vehicular bridge that brings pedestrians, joggers, cyclists (and photographers) down to the river’s edge and Boston’s Esplanade. So as the sun sets, it drapes the bridge in shadow and sets its stone supports aglow with long rays of sun stretching over frozen waters.

This bridge is officially named the Harvard Bridge after the Reverend John Harvard and is also known locally as the Mass Ave Bridge. One would think that a “Harvard Bridge” would connect Boston to Harvard University but instead it’s MIT, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, across the river here. (It’s the Anderson Memorial Bridge that connects Boston to Harvard U. Go figure…) But from the vantage point of this pedestrian footbridge on a cold winter’s day at sunset, it could simply be called the Golden Bridge.
