Cross Bronx Cause

Drivers trying to get into the city faced delays of 90 minutes on the George Washington Bridge Friday because of a tractor-trailer accident and fuel spill on the eastbound Cross Bronx Expressway.

Two lanes of the Cross Bronx Expressway were shut down after the early-morning accident at the Sheridan Expressway. They reopened by about 9:00 a.m., but lingering delays were extensive; traffic stretched all the way to New Jersey.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was hurt.

Separately, a disabled jitney bus blocked the right lane in the center tube of the Lincoln Tunnel, causing delays of at least 45 minutes at the height of the commute.

Maria was born, raised and currently lives in Sofia, Bulgaria, EU. She is a journalist by profession and practices psychological consultation for the past few years. Maria worked as a reporter/journalist for a number of newspapers and radio stations. She served as a chief-editor of the National Library's monthly magazine Librarian for a number of years. Maria started drawing in 1991, urged by a strong inner need to recreate the reality beyond the usual – the world of forms and details… She has taken part in various exhibitions and her work is in a number of private collections around the world. It can be seen at MarmiArt.com. Maria's drawings are created using mixed techniques – aquarelle, tempera, ink, pencils, etc. They are unique and have no names. Their eventual owners would give them names, effectively becoming a part of the process of creating them. Every one can charge their own drawing with one's own energy and identify it with one's self. The drawings will repay generously, predisposing for calm moments of reflection and meditation.
