Der "Graue Hof"

Die Eroberung der freien Stadt Braunschweigs 1671 und die Krönung Karls IV des Schweigerenkels Herzog Anton-Ullrichs brachten einen Prestigegewinn mit sich, der nach einer angemessenen Residenz verlangte. So wurde 1712/13 der Entschluss für den Bau des Grauen Hofes gefasst. Als Standort wurde die "Grauer Hof" genannte Stadtresidenz der Zisterziensermönche von Riddagshausen gewählt, das auch schon Herzog Rudolf August als Stadtquartier diente. Der Hofarchitekt Hermann Korb, der auch schon das Welfenschloss in Wolfenbüttel umgebaut hat sollte ab 1717 nach dem Tod Anton-Ullrichs den Bau für Herzog August Wilhelm beginnen. Während der Revolution von 1830 brannten der Nord- und der Ost-Flügel ab, woraufhin man den Entschluss fasste, eine neue Residenz auf den Mauern der alten zu errichten. Das Modell entstand 2007 für eine Arbiet im Fach Architekturtheorie.

The suspension span of the Triborough bridge complex spans 420 meters over the East River and connects Queens to Ward's Island.

The original plans had to be simplified by master bridge builder Othmar Ammann to save on building costs. The new design was a one deck design with a center span of 420 meters and 213 meter long side spans. The steel towers are 93 meters tall and represent art deco style. The four vertical posts between tower legs are just ornamentals. The deck has six raod lanes and two pedestrian lanes above the stiffening trusswork. It has 44 meters of clearance over the East River. The cables that support the deck are 51 centimeters thick and consist of 9,176 wires each. The construction lasted over six years, and the bridge was opened to traffic on the 11th of June, 1936. The bridge complex is very popular and approximately 200,000 vehicles use it every day. The toll revenues are enormous. In 2002 over 933 million dollars were collected.
