Four photos from a very old folder. Based on the date, I'm fairly sure I took them on the flight home to Boston from attending Minicon in Minneapolis with [profile] silentmachine. But I can't find any record of that flight so I don't know what stopover city I might've gone through. Click on the image to see all four photos; do you recognize those bridges?

Edit: Commenters have identified the first bridge as the Throgs Neck Bridge and the second one as the Verazzano Narrows Bridge (both in NYC).

That looks to me like the Verrazanno Narrows Bridge.

Yeah, I was thinking a NY bridge. My first thought was Tappan Zee but it doesn't have the intervening land mass.

Sorry---I had scrolled down to the last picture and was looking only at that, not realizing that the earlier pictures were not all the same bridge. So I meant the bridge in #4 (which is also the bridge in #3). I believe the foreground in your picture is the Staten Island end of the Verrazanno.

A little digging (the magic word was "curved approach" -- the first one with the big curve is the Throgs Neck Bridge in NYC.

Looks like the Throgs Neck bridge to me -- connects the Bronx and Queens and would be highly visible flying through Laguardia airport.

Yah; the other looks like the verrazano but somehow isn't quite right.
