"When doctors discovered Mr. Amos had lung cancer in 1986, he started building for an uncertain future. So, right next to me, he built the Mrs. a Cuban-style mansion on top of a seven-story parking garage. Unless you're invited...this is the best I can do as far as giving you a view. Why build it here you ask? Well, she missed life from where she was from and it needed to be close to work, but away from the city at the same time. I could wave hello to them from the 19-floor balcony. When they traveled in Europe, they would go to hotels, inns and private homes and take pictures. They copied the things they liked best. They left the actual plans to the architect and the contractor, however.

The resulting $2 million, 10,000-square-foot home opens off a 60-foot marble-floor gallery with 27-foot ceilings. The kitchen has restaurant equipment, and there's an oven on the terrace designed by dad to accommodate the pig they traditionally roast at Christmas. The master bedroom complex includes a gym, and the three guest rooms open on to the pool. A man will do absolutely anything he can for the woman he loves."

   "I suppose I can talk about the tragedy that happened so long ago. As a bridge, I see many people and families drive past me every day. Many people live near here. One day, a mother pulled over with her kids. I heard her say that her kids were possessed with Devil himself, so she drowned them, right here in this creek that lays next to me. She ended up taking her own life as well. Now for some reason the spirits of the babies and the mom still stick around. One day, a car had a flat tire and the driver decided to pull over right on top of me. It was night time. He turned his car off but left the front lights on and, wouldn't you know it...the babies started to cry. In a panic, the man got back in his car...but, it wouldn't start. He got out and tried to check his engine and out of the shadows saw the mother walking towards him. He panicked again as most of you humans do. He got back into his car and finally it turned on. I've never seen someone drive off so fast in my life.  A few weeks later, a group of teens pulled over right on top of me at night, and they witnessed the same thing. A few days later, the same thing happened to different folks. After a while traffic started picking up like crazy. One day, I heard a group of teens say, 'There it is! Cry Baby Bridge!' I guess you can say I'm famous."  Respectfully -Cry Baby Bridge
