Hi all, a few years back one of my cousins wrote a book about Queens NY.
He was able to attain areal images of the building of the Throgs Neck Bridge.
What is special about this to me is, my family lived in the building at the bottom left hand corner of this image since the building went up. The Queens side there is Whitstone, or the Beechhurst section of Queens.
I too lived in that building until 1986 when I moved to Florida.
My granddad may he rest in peace watched the bridge go up.
As well the clearing between the building corner left and the white looking building near the water right where the house is, there now stands a 20 story building called the Cryder House. Granddad also watched the building of that too.
This image is looking north, the land mass top left is the tip of the Bronx where Ft Schuyler Navy Training academy, and ship resides.
I have several more images to scan, will post them up laters.
