Seen one morning while going into New York City. It’s the view from Scarborough Metro-North Station looking South towards the Tappan Zee Bridge. It’s officially called the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, but to me it will always be the Tappan Zee Bridge. I have nothing against Mr.Cuomo and he seems to have been a decent enough NY State governor. But to me the name Tappan Zee conjures up images of the Dutch Pre-Revolutionary NY State; Washington Irving; The Legend of Sleepy Hollow; Rip Van Winkle etc. whereas The Mario M. Cuomo Bridge merely conjures up an image of a NY State politician.

I like the way the picture came out. It has something (just a little) of the feel of a Turner painting – or at least that’s the way it seems to me.
