Looking east at construction on Arlington Memorial Bridge over the Potomac River in Washington, D.C., in the United States. Note the statue on the partially-constructed pedestal just to the right of the abutments (bottom center). The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts erected this mock-up to determine how high statues on the piers of the bridge should be.

      agreed, there is no way that is DC. When did we have a train station connection to a port of that size?

    • Yeah, that pic has been driving me nuts all morning trying to figure out where exactly it is.

    That second photo is definitely the Battery, at the southern tip of Manhattan. That’s clearly the old Staten Island Ferry building.

    I thought I was going crazy – but….great pic none the less
