Bridges of Manhattan's East Side - View From # 1 WTC


A unique view, one Christmas day, from the rooftop of Tower 1, World Trade Center - as high as possible a view then, from the base of the WTC master antenna. Bridges? Yes: Manhattan, Brooklyn, 59th Street... Looking here at Manhattan, Queens, Bronx & beyond.

Here is a bridge... would you like to buy it?

Brooklyn Bridge


There are many stories about this bridge! It began as a for-profit (speculative) venture in the boom days of building up Manhattan.

Over the decades there have been countless stories and jokes about charlatans/con men trying to sell the bridge for a terrific price. Wonderful deal! Times change, people maybe not so much. Bridges can be a beautiful thing. To walk on or view. Driving, YMMV

Rescued/re-located from Google+ Collection, RIP April 2019

# 9 Narrow Gauge Train (Georgetown Loop)


I've just posted this to a #bridge theme photo event, and it reminded me of the whole #9 Train Show I'd left behind in the Old World (#gplus).
I did manage to time-shift my Google+ post, complete links, "here" in the last days of Google+, but at the time I was connected to nobody and probably did not fully embrace the power of the hashtag.

What I do love about Pluspora is the ability to share links to posts here publicly. I've also found that Google (bless their evil heart) will index public posts very quickly, one of the big losses from Google+'s well-integrated search/index function. Anyway, here again now, is my tribute to # 9, the #9 train, and trains in general. Still a nice list, with help from ralphyboy. I was "chuffed" (my only true English slang) to be able to re-find this. Enjoy.

#9 - Trains - The Music
