The Throgs Neck Bridge
FAA WATERCOLOR MARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON FINAL SALES
While down at the Throgs Neck Bridge I was looking for a good angle to try and capture the beauty of this bridge. On this particular day the tide was low and you could walk out far on the jetties. I saw one jetty and decided to walk half way out because I wanted to capture the majority of the bridge in addition to the jetty to my right which was giving off some interesting colors from the algae and colors of the rocks from the salt water and sun. Got in position and captured the jetty. the Throgs Neck Bridge and the clouds moving in over the bridge. The Throgs Neck Bridge is a suspension bridge opened on January 11, 1961, which carries Interstate 295 over the East River where it meets the Long Island Sound. The bridge connects the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx with the Bay Terrace section of Queens. It is the newest bridge across the East River and was built to relieve traffic on the adjacent Whitestone Bridge which opened in 1939.
The Throgs Neck Bridge is the easternmost bridge off of Long Island. Due to this and its proximity to both the Cross Bronx Expressway and the New England Thruway, it is the preferred route from Long Island to New Jersey via the George Washington Bridge, upstate New York, Connecticut and other points north and east. Heading northbound, there are views of the Trump Towers in New Rochelle, Westchester County, and heading southbound on a clear day one can see the Manhattan skyline.
