bridge of *sighs*

So this is a hell of a nice picture showing something really dumb. A sailboat got hung up on the bridge to Manhattan’s Roosevelt Island on Monday evening. Police said the vessel managed to get its mast hung up on the side of the Roosevelt Island Bridge, which connects the island and Queens, about 8 p.m. Two passengers aboard the boat were brought to safety, and the boat itself was towed to Pier 59. Neither person was injured.
From our local knowledge in NY: The funniest part is – if you pass Roosevelt on its east side there’s this low drawbridge they hit. If you pass it on its west side you go under the 59th street fucking bridge – which is about 3x taller. Even assuming they didn’t have a chart aboard, one can eyeball this and pick a side accordingly…
