Post Cards from the Tri-State

Sushiboy asked me to bring back a postcard from the post office. I brought back three 'cause I'm just like that. Accommodating.

Here you go, one from each state in the NY Tristate:

Mystic, Connecticut


Ellis Island, looking toward Manhattan, circa 1999. It looks older than that to me! In fact this photo looks about 30 years old, doesn't it? With hand-painted color?

The Pulaski Skyway, New Jersey (near Newark)

I'm including this postcard instead of a beautiful one for the fine state of New Jersey because the powers that be just figured out that this humongous bridge was built using the same exact method employed to construct the bridge that collapsed in Minnesota. They now plan to rebuild the Pulaski Skyway over the course of 20 years. Sounds like fun for all.


There you go, Sushiboy. I aim to please!

Woo Hoo, Nice postcards. Thanks Zed! The New York one was a nice view.

Thanks, Sans. There are a million postcard sites, but most are terrible. I hope you find what you want. :)

that photo of the WT Center and Ellis island is so weird. you're right when you said it looks like it was touched up by hand. didn't they do that in the 50s? weird weird weird.

Yes there is, you just haven't seen it. That's my HOME state by the way--I was born in Hoboken. So you lost 3 points again. You have an uphill battle ahead of you, BeckEye. :)

Remember not to vote for her Zed! Haha. Are you going to shoot my ammo over to me from the post office?

I already sent it. My, we seem in a hurry for it! Did you need it by tomorrow or something? You're not going to shoot at the neighbors, I hope.

It's strange to see the Twin Towers again. If you look just to the right, that black building is where my company's offices are in New York.

VERY cool. 20 years!? Yikes. I hope it doesn't collapse before then.

psst...It's Mel's birthday today. I am trying to get her the wish she asked for--47 comments, so I am reminding people as I am blog surfing.

That's going to be a pile o' work to replace the Pulaski Skyway. That's one long bridge!

Dave, the pointy one or the square one?

Shelli, that's really sweet of you. I appreciate the reminder. I'll go leave a HB wish.

Barbara, I know. It's miles and miles long. I'm so glad I don't have to cross it--last time I did, about 5 years ago, it shook unreasonably even then.

Wow, I'd forgotten how pretty Newark NJ is. ;)

It's magnificent, Parlancheq, in it's own ugly and disgusting way.

It'll be a while before I go again, Beth. But I'll try to remember. :)

The square one. Our Swiss owners would never put up with pointy.

The Swiss are a somewhat rigid crowd.

Sorry Zed, my view of New Jersey is forever tainted from living a year in Jersey City.

And Dale, stop pandering for votes, you bastard!
