The Queensboro Bridge

September 15th, 2014

as seen from East River Roundabout, the helical aluminum sculpture mounted on top of the red steel beams. (Those beams once supported the roof of the former garbage transfer station that still stands beneath my feet.) The sculpture, dedicated in 1995, recently became part of the new Andrew Haswell Green Park, the only substantial public monument (not counting a bench in Central Park) to a man who was "arguably the most important leader in Gotham's long history, more important than Peter Stuyvesant, Alexander Hamilton, Frederick Law Olmsted, Robert Moses and Fiorello La Guardia."
