It’s National Blueberry Pie Day, in these United States.

As you might have surmised, I was up on or around the Koscisuzcko Bridge all day yesterday. Saying that, one is a bit fried as normal obligation continued through the evening and even into today. Accordingly, too little sleep and so that means this will be a somewhat abbreviated posting – a bookmark – for a milestone in Newtown Creek history.

Monday, however, expect something a bit more in depth on the subject.

There was a morning hullabaloo, followed by an evening hullabaloo, which punctuated me running back and forth to Astoria to develop shots. By the time you’re reading this, vehicle traffic is now passing over the new bridge and the old one sits fallow for the first time in 78 years.

Lots of cool stuff was observed, experienced, and so on – more on it all Monday.
