Like a Bridge

At my going-away party we started talking about our favorite bridges (I'm really going to miss it here). My coworker Lindsey maintains the Verazzano is the best bridge in the world. I can't speak to that, never having traveled it myself. But in looking for pictures to demonstrate its awesomeness, I found this photo of the Verazzano under construction. I'm not an engineer, but brief glimpses like this make me appreciate the profession all the more.

The pylon's just sitting in the middle of the water! How did they get it out there in the first place?!!
