The Lively Morgue posted the photo above of a tank at the Throgs Neck Bridge on March 11, 1968. Apparently, it had been abandoned there for a weekend, sitting atop the flat bed truck and block a portion of the entrance to the bridge at E. 177th street.
Gizmodo just posted this insane video of a group of well-dressed people standing with their back facing a storming tank as the tank brakes hard just before it hits them. Umm, what?! Are these people crazy or just super-confident in this tank’s abilities to stop at will?
Going back to a time before I knew Brooklyn. I don’t have any memories of these tanks, but it’s neat to see them up in the skyline like that (if only for a few seconds before they come down). Here’s one more video.
Why not I guess. Seeing a tank crush a car is always fun.
This may seem really stupid, but trust me, this entire tank car chase scene in Fast & Furious 6 took home the cake for one of the best action chase sequences ever. It was just so outrageous to the point that it fell out of being enjoyable and then fell right back into it again. […]
Photo taken on November 26, 1939. The Lively Morgue has some interesting background info on this image.
