Guest Blog: Grab your Seats for the Big Show

You guys are making a big fuss over me — well, what’s left of me. There’s not a lot of me in the river; however, what’s there is getting lots of attention. Old age isn’t so bad after all.

Remember when I told you how I felt about being replaced? NO one said boo. Then the new bridge came along, and they began to take me apart. My middle section drew lots of attention, and even the governor same to see me. He hadn’t paid me mind at all except for wanting to be rid of me.

So now people are throwing parties Saturday morning and vying for the best place to watch part of me fall into the Hudson River. Told you it wouldn’t be so easy to say goodbye because if it was, then you’d be at home in your jammies instead of paying money for parking, hotel rooms and dining with a riverfront view.

I’ll be around until they remove the rest of me. And when time comes that I’m visibly gone, you may find yourself looking for me next to the eastbound span . . . because no matter what you call the new bridge, there will never be another me.

I’d like to know what you think.
