George Washington Bridge 80th Anniversary video

Sirk Productions recently updated a video commemorating the 80th anniversary of the George Washington Bridge for the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey.  Connecting Fort Lee, New Jersey to the island of Manhattan, the George Washington Bridge sends over 52 million vehicles a year into New York City. As Sirk was founded in the great state of New Jersey  and now finds its home in Manhattan, it has been a particular privilege to celebrate the bridge that connects Sirk Productions’ past and present.

Looking toward the future, Sirk Productions is in talks with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey’s Principal Marketing Analyst Russell Jordan about the next video for the bridge’s 85th anniversary.

Check out the video and lots of other great information on the George Washington Bridge on the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey’s website: http://www.panynj.gov/bridges-tunnels/gwb-80.html
