While asking for the location of my airport’s window in the United States, I was told that it was over the bridge.
My first impression was that it must be above the bridge, but since there was nothing above the bridge, I started walking towards the bridge and saw that it was on the other side of the bridge.
After coming back I went through the dictionary and found the “other side of ” meaning of the word above, which I did not know earlier. That is weird because over is used all the time.
Which of those two meaning is the more common usage of over, above something or on the other side of it?
