I was carted off Staten Island when I was still young enough (14) to think that the distance to Brooklyn was far too great for a bridge ever to be built. I still remember the first time I ever heard it mentioned, I guess around 1953. The sister of my friend, the late Larry Cervini of the Bronx, hoid me say that I was from up that way, and she told me they were thinkin of buildin a bridge to Brooklyn. Well naturally I pooh-poohed that nonsense.

Since then I've seen it a few times, but I ain't rode across it yet. It sure is pretty at night.
