The Bronx–Whitestone Bridge

January 3rd, 2013

In this shot from Francis Lewis Park (named for a local signer of the Declaration of Independence), we get a better view of the stay cables* that, as we learned last time we saw the bridge, were installed to help keep it from going the way of the Tacoma Narrows.

* Four stay cables (not to be confused with the main suspension cables) run diagonally from the top of each tower down to the roadway. You can see them more clearly if you zoom in.
