Two Small Pieces of a Whole Lot of History

Governor Cuomo began the last week in August by touring the eastbound span that will be finished next month. “I’m pleased to report that thanks to the tireless work of the women and men building the new bridge, the project will be completed in mid-September if Mother Nature cooperates,” Cuomo said.

These photos of the dwindling bridge are a stark contract to the stay-cabled towers looming high above the Thruway. Now if only they can retain the area’s history via a name addition. Notice I didn’t say change; I said addition. For many it will always be the Tappan Zee Bridge.

During Wednesday night’s primary debate with gubernatorial challenger Cynthia Nixon, Cuomo stated, “The Tappan Zee Bridge is no more. Actually, I was there the other day. There’s two small pieces left,” he gestured with his hands. “It’s going to go away.”

Not from the hearts and minds of many in the Hudson Valley.

I’d like to know what you think.
