Dark Horse: Night Photos Illuminate NYC’s George Washington Bridge
The George Washington Bridge is a double-decked suspension bridge that spans the Hudson River between Manhattan and Fort Lee, New Jersey. Though the bridge may be the world’s busiest, it rarely attracts photographers and nighttime photos of the bridge are even rarer. Thankfully, a photographer who goes by Dark Cyanide captured the bridge magnificently illuminated with lights one recent night.
Each of the bridge’s two towers is 604 feet tall and has 380 light fixtures. Interestingly, the lights are a relatively new addition (The bridge was built in 1957, but the lights weren’t installed until 2000.) and are only lit for major holidays. Dark Cyanide captured these photos over President’s Day weekend.
