Colorful Memories: The River’s Story

If a picture is worth one thousand words, then a painting is priceless.

Last week I was led to artwork online that chronicled progress on the Hudson River as a new bridge was built: colorful, bold, expressive watercolors. Warner Library in Tarrytown exhibited these paintings and sketches on the bridge’s 25th anniversary (1980).

Although the region will have a new span, the Tappan Zee Bridge — its name, our individual memories of it, and its significances to us — remain forever.

I’d like to know what you think.
