I happened to be right at the apex of the Williamsburg Bridge when I heard an extreme bass thrumming, I knew it was something unusual. I looked north. Two Osprey helicopters heading right at me is more than unusual. I barely had time to get my camera out and aim where I hoped it would be, as this military helicopter went directly overhead. When I first saw them approaching from the north their rotors were in the vertical position, pulling them along like a prop aircraft. As they went overhead the blades went horizontal. Part of Fleet Week, I’m sure.
The East River Promenade is still closed below Houston Street, though amenities in that closed stretch, such as more park benches, have been added since my last report. If you stay here for any length of time you will see many joggers and bikers disappointingly staring at this fence. There is no exit here, you need to go north four blocks to get out.
