As the brand new Willis Avenue Bridge makes its way down the Hudson from the Port of Coeymans it has passed under, or has yet to pass under, these bridges in order from north to south. (Just to confuse things, all views below are from the south.)
The Rip Van Winkle Bridge:
The Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge:
The Mid-Hudson Bridge (and on the far side of the bridge you can see the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park, formerly the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge):
The Newburgh-Beacon Bridge (which did not show up for its school picture).
The Bear Mountain Bridge:
The Tappan Zee Bridge:
And the George Washington Bridge:
All photos probably by Karen, except maybe the Bear Mountain Bridge (but I don’t really remember).
And here’s an update on the bridge’s progress from tomorrow’s (?!) New York Times.
Also, Cornell is not towing the bridge, but her owner, Matt Perricone, is working on the tug Margot, one of three boats assisting with the move.
