Something Old, Something New and Missing Views
It’s been a few weeks since I drove across the bridge yet not so long that sights were unfamiliar. I saw the large area where the police barracks and maintenance facility used to be in Tarrytown and the overhead gantry in South Nyack.
What I noticed was the view from the bridge was gone; even as we were parallel to the river, it was blocked by blue girders. In the above painting my friend, artist Donna Davies Timm, captures a favorite view that also disappeared. When I got near the soon-to-be-gone toll plaza in Tarrytown I chose to pay cash instead of using an E-ZPass® lane. A cheerful lady took my money and returned my smile.
I’d like to know what you think.
