I Cannot Believe Another Day Is Over!

This guy enjoying the sunset over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is probably wondering how cold the water is and if he will ever make it across. Or he may be singing in his head a Britney Spears song “Oops!…I did it again”

 

Interesting Fact: The first driver to cross the bridge wore a rented tuxedo and piloted a “pale blue Cadillac convertible with flags flapping from the fenders,” nabbing the distinction because he had parked behind the Staten Island toll for a week, guaranteeing the position.

    • Thank you very much. Happy to share my photo and tuxedo man fact with you. That fact made me smile once i found it. Thank you again for stopping by 🙂

  1. I took the link and read the 25 facts about the bridge, prepared for its 50th anniversary. A good story and a very good choice of subject

  2. Never knew about the rented tux. I’ll be thinking of that when the weather warms and it’s biking season again. Thanks for the facts!
