There is a moment, after climbing the steep steps of the Piety Street Bridge and reaching the middle of the structure, when the sides rise well above your head and you lose your peripheral view, your sense of where you’re going. Here Hollister hoists himself up the sidewall and perches his feet on a handrail. He offers a hand. “Climb up,” he says, “you won’t believe the view.”
