We never got to see the epic explosion we were promised when the Kosciuszko Bridge was dismantled. This almost makes up for it. From NY Post:
After spanning the Hudson River for six decades, a big chunk of the old Tappan Zee Bridge was toppled in a controlled blast Tuesday.
The east anchor span dropped shortly before 11 a.m. with a flash of fire as chains kept the wreckage above the water level.
The demolition was originally scheduled for Saturday, but was postponed to Tuesday because of high winds.
Explosives detonated vertical support columns on the side closer to Westchester, according to a fact sheet obtained by The Journal News/LoHud.com.
