The Municipal Art Society posted an interesting piece about the Carroll St. Bridge yesterday (the picture above is from their Flickr). Did you know that it is a landmark and that "it is one of the oldest remaining bridges in New York City, and one of only four known “retractile” bridges in the United States"?
Definitely worth celebrating the fact that we have such interesting and historical things nearby.
Check out their entire post here and more of their Flickr photos here.
Also, speaking of MAS, we missed the chance to post about a recent screening of their movie about the NYC waterfront called "City of Water," but check out the official page for the film to learn more and see where it might be playing next. The trailer is below:
