Verrazano Bridge, NYC


Verrazano Bridge, NYC, originally uploaded by Bongo Cachanga.



I've changed from blogger to "blogger beta " which is supposed to be better. I had to change my flickr settings once this was done. Lets see if this photo posts successfully.

Once in awhile, flying back to JFK or LaGuardia, I get a view of the bridge like this. Of course, Bay Ridge is on the top of the photo, left of the Verrazano Bridge. The spot of green past the Brooklyn tower of the bridge consists of Dyker Golf Course, Poly Prep Academy ( high school ) and, near the Belt Parkway, Fort Hamilton Army Base.

When I joined the Navy, I reported for duty at Fort Hamilton. We hung out in a waiting room most of the day, then they gave us tickets for an Amtrak train to Chicago. After a long overnight ride, we arrived at Chicago's Union Station. Chicago in January was the coldest place I have ever been.

Got any shots of the Gil Hodges Bridge? My brother was in the Air National Guard at Floyd Bennett Field.
