Here we are hanging out around the base of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, one of the more exciting locales in the city. It was hard to find a place to stand amongst the throngs of sunbathers and picnickers surrounding us. You may not know (or care) that the Verrazano is the largest suspension bridge in the US, with a main span 60 feet longer than the Golden Gate.
We also decided to load up on some heavy artillery, in case we have to fend off any hooligans or other street toughs. Here we are taking our new purchase for a test run.
