In January 2007 I was a new resident in the City by the Bay. The majestic steep rolling hills, eclectic architecture and the cool, crisp temperatures of San Francisco were a welcome treat after living in New York City for seven years. After settling in, my first conference call with the New York office was done in my car. I was on U.S. Route 1 heading north over the Golden Gate Bridge. I admit this was the most gratifying office conference call I had ever been on. That feeling of freedom and the power of the steel cables surrounding me while suspended above the San Francisco Bay brought me sheer exhilaration.
I am a fan of bridges. When I lived in Brooklyn I loved walking over the Brooklyn Bridge and at this juncture in my life I had the pleasure of having access to both the Bay and Golden Gate Bridges in my backyard. Today the Golden Gate Bridge celebrates its 75th anniversary. Therefore, today I celebrate with snapshots that I took while we were neighbors. Here’s looking at you kid!
