5 Bridges

NY has hundreds of bridges, not just the five that everybody knows. You can see five of them from Rainey Park in Astoria: Queensboro Bridge, Roosevelt Island Bridge, Triboro and Hellsgate, and a small pedestrian bridge going from Manhattan to Wards Island. I had to wait a couple of days for the rain to stop to take that panorama. Rainey Park closes after 9pm, and all the gates stay open. Three police cars drove into the park, and came up to me and asked me what I was doing, that the park is closed, that I’m not supposed to be here, that I could be a terrorist, that it’s dangerous in parks alone at night, that I could get a summons, yadayadayada… fortunately they were all kind enough to leave me alone after a brief chat.
