Verrazano-Narrows Bridge

Once or twice when I've flown down to Virginia
(which I did the other day), I've been lucky
enough to get this view of the country's
longest suspension bridge—almost three
miles including the approaches, and the
center span is 4,620 feet (just 420 feet
longer than the Golden Gate).
That's Brooklyn at the top, Staten Island
at the bottom.

  1. Excellent aerial shot, Alexa!
    «Louis» apologizes that he accidentally set Linky to close earlier than normal for Sunday Bridges.
