9780978964016: Bayonne Bridge, a Landmark By Land, Sea, and Air

THE BAYONNE BRIDGE is among The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey's oldest facilities. Built ahead of schedule and under budget, the bridge opened to the traveling public on November 15, 1931 -just three weeks after the opening of the Port Authority's George Washington Bridge. With its 1,675-foot clear span, the Bayonne Bridge's arch was the longest in the world for 45 years. When the Port Authority made plans for the Bayonne Bridge, it asked the designer for a structure that would be both functional and beautiful. The bridge, designed by Othmar H. Ammann, is both. It was a triumph of modern design, overcoming significant construction challenges including crossing one of the world's busiest shipping channels, the Kill Van Kull, where port commerce could not be interrupted. Bayonne Bridge: A Landmark by Land, Sea, and Air celebrates the Bayonne Bridge on its 75th anniversary. It is generously illustrated with drawings and photographs, most of which were selected from the Port Authority's own archive. The book is a fitting tribute to an unprecedented feat of engineering known by millions of travelers, as well as the residents of the two communities it joins: Bayonne, New Jersey and Port Richmond, Staten Island.
