The bridges of New York are just beautiful, a vivid representation of the growth of iron as a building material ....and while I show you my pictures taken during my trip to New York in 2006 of several bridges found along the Hudson River, I'll give a little history to nourish your intellect...just a tiny bit not to bore you. What the hell, right! I'll give you IRON, the birth of steel reinforcement, of huge spans and of incredible buildings made glass and steel.
