Format: Hardcover
When I visited NJ for the first time with my wife a decade ago, (I'm an Aussie from Melbourne and my wife was originally from Jersey City) all my new NJ in-laws were not a little suprised at my instant facination for the skyline as we drove along the Pulaski Skyway. Being an ex mechanical engineer old enough to have owned a train set as a kid, it was as if I'd been shrunk and dropped into the worlds best train set. The evidence of 20 century US industrial muscle was everywhere to be seen. Lift bridges, elevated steel highways, girders girders everywhere. I have been back a few times and never tire of looking out of the car window at the passing scenes.....my in-laws think I'm a little crazy to find interest in any of what is often considered by them to be rusty derilect eyesores. It finaly occured to me to look for a book on the subject and I'm so glad I did. This is a great book to dip into and appears to be thoroughly researched. Also I was pleasantly suprised to find it was a hardbook. Given my choices I'd rather have more photos, and perhaps a 'coffee table' version of such a book exists, but for the price it is excellent value. I really can't wait to take it with me on my next trip. I highly recommend the book to anyone interested in civil engineering and history, especially if you live in NJ or can visit.

I was hoping for more pictures since it's subtitled "Portraits of the Garden State", but the pictures are in black and white and quite small. There is a lot of text and information about the bridges. Also, where is the Walt Whitman???
