I accidentally hit the focal black and white button when I was editing this photo and I liked the effect so I left it that way. I don't know anything about the bridge between two buildings, which I think is in Chelsea. You can see this bridge from the High Line, the park I mentioned on Friday. Have a good week!

I have never seen this before and would not be able to sleep until I had solved the mystery! Info from the web:

Part of the Nabisco complex , "in 1932, Louis Wirsching Jr., their in-house architect, replaced some of the original bakeries with the present structure, accomodating the elevated freight railroad viaduct, today known as the High Line, and adding the Art Deco pedestrian bridge crossing 10th Avenue.

Nabisco later moved to NJ in 1958, but while there, baked Saltines, Mallomars, Animal Crackers and Oreos, which were first produced in Chelsea in 1912.

And of course, past bedtime and not a single cookie in the house!

Hi all, Ivan, it's just the picassa photo editing that I was using. That's all I have.
