In Route

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!
