New York Bridges

Hi! I have contacted you folks many times before and have made many important corrections on some pages. I have also been to a few NY Wikipedia meetings in NYC. I have been working on a Coffee table book on New York's bridges for the last 26 years. Can I use some of the information from Wikipedia even if I use some information word for word? I do have Engineer Friends who have made corrections but I will gladly give credit to Wikipedia in my book. Will this be okay? Thank you, Dave Frieder. PS. You folks have used some of my bridge photos in a few of your Bridge information sites. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Grillage 2 (talkcontribs) 00:30, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
