On the Way to Bethel via the Tappan Zee . . .

Love blossomed following a car breakdown on the Tappan Zee Bridge en route to the 1969 music festival. Wonder how many other couples met this way during the bridge’s nearly 62 years. Photo ia from a road trip to Woodstock years ago.

I’d like to know what you think.

Art Alert: ArtsWestchester calls for Proposals

ArtsWestchester and the Thruway Authority are collaborating and seek proposals from professional artists and artist collectives in New York State to create bicycle racks for the new bridge’s landings and a mural for the underpass on the Rockland County landing.

Deadline for bicycle rack proposals is August 18. Projects/commissions must be completed and ready to install by October 22.

Deadline for mural proposals is September 13. Up to five finalists will be notified two weeks later; the winning mural will be installed by April 2020.

Here’s an opportunity to leave your artistic footprint on the bridge project!

I’d like to know what you think.

Paving the Greenery to build a Bike/Walk Path

Above is the Esposito Trail a little way in taken two summers ago. I wouldn’t have recognized it (below) had it not been for the Thruway signs to the left. Photo is courtesy of the New York State Thruway Authority.

I’d like to know what you think.
