Verrazano Bridge, NYC

Verrazano Bridge, NYC

The Verrazano Bridge is a great place to work on some New York photography. I find that the Brooklyn photography images from the Verrazano Bridge while the sun is setting really come out colorful. There are always photographers taking pictures near the Verrazano Bridge. The massive size and many angles and lines of this New York icon make it a really dynamic New York Photography location.

The following is an description of the bridge from wikipedia:

“The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is a double-decked suspension bridge that connects the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn in New York City at the Narrows, the reach connecting the relatively protected upper bay with the larger lower bay. The bridge is named for Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano, the first known European navigator to enter New York Harbor and the Hudson River. It has a center span of 4,260 feet (1,298 m) and was the largest suspension bridge in the world from the time of its completion in 1964 until 1981. It now has the seventh longest center span in the world but still is the largest suspension bridge in the United States. Its massive towers can be seen throughout a good part of the New York metropolitan area, including from spots in all five boroughs of New York City. The bridge furnishes a critical link in the local and regional highway system. It is widely known today as the starting point of the New York City Marathon. The bridge marks the gateway to New York Harbor; all cruise ships and most container ships arriving at the Port of New York and New Jersey must pass underneath the bridge. Most ships, when built, must be built to accommodate the clearance under the bridge. Among local residents it is often referred to as simply “the Verrazano”.” excerpt from wikipedia
