Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge



The Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge, part of The Big Dig Project in Boston, is the widest cable-stayed bridge in the world. The Bridge serves as the northern entrance to and exit from Boston. The Bridge is named after civil rights activist Lenny Zakim and the American colonists who fought the British in the Battle of Bunker Hill.

I took this picture from the parking garage. I've never actually been over this bridge, I just thought it looked cool in the morning light.

As a side note, I still have not given my notice yet. My start date for the new job got moved up to after the first of the year because the University closes for a week at Christmas. I couldn't really start much before that due to obligations at my current employer. So, Monday will be the big day. Yikes.

It's reaally cool to go over, actually, because you have a view of the Bunker Hill Memorial (which inspired the Zakim).

I have been over that bridge many times. Very cool.

Hey Two Ladies! I can't believe I haven't been over this thing. Seems like with all the time I spent in Boston I would have gone over it at least once.

You too McMeaty? Many times? I must be on the wrong side of Beantown or something. Do you think it is nicer than the Miller Street Bridge?

Good luck for Monday hon, I'll be thinking of you. But skipping on to more important things, I trust we beat you Yanks down and won the battle of Bunker hill? (If not, I'm off on a strop outta' here, bad enough I have to suffer through all your gloatings on the 4th July, never minds thanksgivings. Sheesh, such grudges you lot bear.. hmph.)

Hey thanks Shrinky. Sorry about that whole Battle of Bunker Hill thing. Having had grandparents that came over from Northern Ireland I am a big fan of the UK. As you know, London is one of my favorite cities. Looking forward to getting back there some day.

What a great angle on that picture. One of these days Fran and I need to go explore more of the Boston area... after winter!
