Walking across the George Washington Bridge

with one comment

Inspired by Creative Time’s KEY TO THE CITY project, in which participants are presented with a key that unlocks interesting places around New York City, Greg, Lizzie and I decided to walk across George Washington Bridge. The key was supposed to unlock the gate to a normally-closed pedestrian walkway, but we arrived to find it already unlocked, with pedestrians streaming across. Nevertheless, the views were spectacular.

It also gave me a chance to use a technique that I’ve been playing with in subtler ways for quite some time: vertical panoramas. On a vertically-oriented webpage like a blog, I think the results speak for themselves:
