New Bridge in the Distance, TZB Removal Ensues

Driving west on Benedict Avenue you can see a few of the main span towers as you descend down the hill. It’s a tease until the trees are bare of leaves; their tops are visible.

I took this photo from the third floor day room of mom’s rehab facility one week before the westbound span officially opened. Crews began removing the Tappan Zee Bridge’s landings and abutments last week, which I noticed last week. Today is one month since vision correction in my left eye and two weeks since my right eye’s correction. My distance vision is crystal clear.

However, out of their (and our) line of vision, crews are busy under the bridges:

Two people were talking about the bridge yesterday before dinner. Watching the towers rise was entertaining, one woman told me. “We used to look to see how high they were getting,” she’d say excitedly.

More of the bridges will be visible on the coming weeks as trees directly in front of the day room window change color and fall. Perfect view of sunset, too.

I’d like to know what you think.

    It is perhaps a very appropriate to say that your renewed 20/20 vision coincides with a new vision for all of us. This is the uncovering of new information and insights that were not noticed by many, as we demolish the Old Bridge to make way for the new Gov. New Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. A once blurred or unknown vision will now become very clear.
