This bridge named after the Italian Explorer
Giovanni da Verranzo, the first known European
navigator to enter the New York Harbor and the
Hudson River while crossing 'The Narrows'.
Completed in 1964, it was the longest suspension
bridge in the world at that time.
Today the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge in Japan is the longest
suspension bridge in the world at 12,831 ft.
The Verranzo-Narrows bridge is still the largest
suspension bridge in the U.S. at 4, 260 ft. in length with
it's double decker bi-ways -6 lanes on top and 6 lanes
on the bottom it spans the body of water known as
"The Narrows" from Brooklyn, N.Y. to Staten Island.
My dad lives across the street from this beautiful
bridge, so during our recent visit we took a stroll
shortly after daybreak, to enjoy the view.

I heart old windows and vines.
Windows encourage us to look further,
our imagination conjures a story.
The vines like the peeling paint remind us
it's been a while. The heart never forgets.
Vacation photos coming soon, promise.
