George Washington Bridge Goes Green For Girl Scouts

FORT LEE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – The George Washington Bridge went green Wednesday night, but it had nothing to do with the environment.

The bridge connecting Fort Lee with Manhattan was lit in green in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts.

There will be a centennial bridging event featuring thousands of Girl Scouts walking across the bridge’s south walk to Manhattan on Sunday, November 13, 2011. That starts at 9:00 a.m. and will also feature activities on nearby Martha Washington Way in Fort Lee.

The bridge will remain green through the end of the month.

The GWB, which herself just turned 80 last week, was pink in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

    Yeah, the so called “pink” always looks purple.
    I do, on the other hand, like the colors on the bridge. I have a direct view of the bridge from my apartment and it’s a treat to see it lit up with a color.

    just really want to point out that the whole going pink for breast cancer thing is a total fail don’t show me purple and tell me it’s pink.
