East River bridge #3 of 5 - Williamsburg Bridge   2006-04-14

 

Williamsburg Bridge this past Tuesday, 6:30 pm, walking westbound from Williamsburg to Loisaida (today's gentrified name for the Lower East Side, which is simply Spanish for lower east side).     The plaques date back to the original 1903 opening and the description (not clear in these photos) describe the commissioning of the bridge construction by the separate cities of New York and Brooklyn prior to NYC unification in 1898.
