Dave Kim had a birthday this year, just like last year, but this time he invited a few friends to make a visit to Storm King Art Center a few miles up the Hudson River. Though the season was extended to unseasonably warm weather, the leaves had dropped, revealing all the beautiful sculptures ready for some Fuji Superia 400.

On the way home we crossed the Tappan Zee Bridge, which will soon be demolished. Thanks to a mix of politics and greed, New York State built the bridge north of the NY/NJ Port Authority’s jurisdiction to keep the tolls and revenue to itself. This means the bridge crosses the Hudson at it’s second widest point — at nearly 3 miles in length, it’s fallen into disrepair and has become too costly to maintain.
Storm King is closed for the seasons, see you next year!
