Carry That Weight

I never give you my pillow.

I only send you my invitations.

And in the middle of the celebrations 

I break down.




Lyrics from “Carry That Weight” by The Beatles, 1969.

Observing this colossus in The Power Broker [1974], Robert Caro wrote: “Triborough [is] not a bridge so much as a traffic machine, the largest ever built.” And, according to the New York State Department of Transportation, he’s probably still right. In 2018, for example, the agency recorded an average of 145,330 vehicles crossing its decks each day.
