Here is the pedestrian walkway flanked by the imposing steel structure of the bridge.
Looking north one could see the rough, choppy waters of the East River and the Triboro Bridge in the background.
Directly down below was the pedestrian promenade and a park under renovation.
We took lunch at the Food Emporium located in the base of the bridge, then sketched the view from the promenade at water's edge.
Around three pm the rain started which put paid to a successful day of urban sketching.
