Artist's Description

Pentax Optio 330GS, f4.8, 1/200sec, 6mm (35mm equiv 38mm)

Before the “Bridge to Nowhere”, there was a bridge to nowhere, New York State Capital…. Albany NY.

The legend is that the original plan was to put a tunnel under the Hudson River, but…. The construction of the Empire State Plaza (NYS Govenment Complex) was taking way to long and to Gov. Nelson Rockefeller’s dismay was being talked about downstate (NYC)…. so scrap the tunnel, build the bridge(s).
Unfortunately the one leg of the bridge was going to take-out a church in Rensselaer, across the river… Hence we now have our “Bridge to Nowhere”, 1960 somethingish!
