When I got home from work on Thursday, January 5, 2012, I saw that the tower lights of the George Washington Bridge were on.

These lights are truly glorious, but only used on rare occasions. That’s a lot of candlepower and it must cost a pretty penny to use it.

Why were the towers illuminated in this case? Well, I called the Port Authority on Friday and they told me CBS television had arranged with them to have the lights on for filming of a show. I don’t know what show.

Anyway, here are some more shots of the bridge from Thursday night. Enjoy.

    I sincerely hope the towers were lit last night January 20th, in honour of Martin Luther King, Jr’s. birthday and our President’s 2nd inauguration! It was beautiful!

  2. I saw the same thing on Monday Jan 21 morning, it was beautiful, figured it was for MLK day or the inagreation. It
    should be lit all the time. Makes it look like a new bridge, thought I was dreaming because someone shut the lights off.

    Would be nice if they left the tower lights on all the time. It makes the bridge look even more pretty than it already is.
