From the Daily News:
The 7,449-foot span is being feted over the next few weeks with an array of tributes, exhibits, lectures and tours coordinated by the NYC Bridge Centennial Commission.
The main event is a historic reenactment of the first ride over the bridge, complete with politicians in period dress, antique cars and a nighttime fireworks show on May 31.
Philip Butler of Grucci Fireworks promised a program that will be "short and sweet with maximum entertainment impact."
"There will be eight different firings of '100,'" he said, referring to pyrotechnic numerals to commemorate the bridge's 100th birthday. "Hopefully, no matter where you are standing, '100' will be there in front of your eyes."
Local historians and civic activists hope the pomp and circumstance also prompts New Yorkers to recognize the bridge's own unique beauty and history.
I'd also like to thank the Daily News for choosing a shot that shows the decrepitude of the shoreline at Queensbridge Park.
