Artist's Description

This shot in the fog was taken early Saturday morning June 7, 2008.

The Manhattan Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the East River in New York City, connecting Lower Manhattan (at Canal Street) with Brooklyn (at Flatbush Avenue Extension). It was the last of the three suspension bridges built across the lower East River, following the Brooklyn and the Williamsburg bridges. The bridge was opened to traffic on December 31, 1909 and was designed and built by Polish bridge engineer Ralph Modjeski with the deflection cables designed by Leon Moisseiff, who later designed the infamous Tacoma Narrows Bridge in 1940. It has four vehicle lanes on the upper level (split between two roadways). There are three vehicle lanes, four subway tracks, a walkway and a bikeway on the lower level. The upper level, originally used for streetcars, has two lanes in each direction, and the lower level can be one-way in peak direction or have two lanes in one direction and the other in the opposite direction.
