Gil Hodges Bridge

Alan McDonald asked if I had any photos of the Gil Hodges Bridge.

The answer was no, but I have easily obtained one at the sensational photo-sharing site www.flickr.com

Just went on there, and did a search for "Gil Hodges Bridge". You'll see some other photos of the bridge there.

If you want to find photos of any public place, this is a good place to look. Really handy for bloggers also.

The Gil Hodges Bridge connects Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn with the Rockaway Pensinsula of Queens NY. it is named after the famous Brooklyn Dodgers baseball player Gil Hodges, who played in the 1950s.

I've rode my bike over this bridge a few times, into Rockaway and beyond. Great fun on a cool day.

Thanks, Phantom. It brings back old times.

BTW, did you see that Rockaway now has two memorials on 116th Street?

The second one (for Flight 587) is here.

The first (for 9/11) is here.
