As you may have heard, the George Washington Bridge isn’t being left out of the festivities for Super Bowl XLVIII, which will be played shortly down at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. On Wednesday, I posted photos taken from a little down the Hudson River. Here, I’m posting ones I took on Saturday at the Fort Lee Historic Park.

The orange lights are, of course, for the Denver Broncos and the green lights are for the Seattle Seahawks.

I took a close-up of one of the orange lights both before and after it was illuminated.

You can see here that the center LED is white. I’d assume that’s so it’s neutral and neither team would get more lights than the other on the center span.

It took a while after the necklace lights were illuminated before the tower lights were turned on.

This one doesn’t show off the orange lights or the green lights, but I thought it was pretty neat. So, I’m sharing it here.
