Kosciusko Bridge Demolition (EDIT: add'l video posted)


Cemetery

Recommended Posts

Recently, the Kosciusko Bridge in NYC was demolished.

 

This minute long video is the best one I've seen.  Use of GoPro video camera (?) gives angles which we normally wouldn't see.

 

Way Cool.

 

 

EDIT: And here's an add'l video, with different up close angles

Yeah,  wish my cap guns could do shock waves like that!

 

There will be two bridges there, area is getting resigned for better traffic flow.....if that's even possible.  Traffic heading into Brooklyn is backed up for miles into Queens.

We called the Long Island Expressway, the Long Island Distressway -- "the worlds longest parking lot". ^_^

 

Well that hasn't changed.  Traffic can be backed up from Long Island City to who knows how deep into Nassau County............suicide.

Very cool, and quite the coincidence that just last night I sat and watched a show on PBS about the man the bridge was named for, and how important he was in our fight for independence.

Love the ripple effect of the charges!

 

An EOD NCO told me once that if a piece of det cord could be strung from San Francisco to NYC, and lit in NYC, it would take 17 minutes for it to reach the west coast.

I have it at 10 minutes 40 seconds, but maybe he had a safer, less direct route.
