We went again to the Walkway Over the Hudson. It is so beautiful and peaceful to walk across this piece of history.
Before it became the Walkway Over the Hudson, this 1.28 mile structure was the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge. When trains began rumbling over the bridge in 1888, it was the longest bridge in the world. The bridge was a main transportation hub that was crossed by 3,500 freight cars each day! In 1974 the railroad bridge was crippled by a fire.
Today the Walkway Over the Hudson is the narrowest State Park, as well as, the world's longest elevated pedestrian bridge. It soars 212 feet above the Hudson River.
