The Manhattan Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the East River in New York City, connecting Lower Manhattan (at Canal Street) with Brooklyn (at Flatbush Avenue Extension). It was the last of the three suspension bridges built across the lower East River, following the Brooklyn and the Williamsburg bridges. The bridge was opened to traffic on December 31, 1909 and was designed by Leon Moisseiff, who later designed the infamous original Tacoma Narrows Bridge that opened and collapsed in 1940. It has four vehicle lanes on the upper level (split between two roadways). The lower level has three lanes, four subway tracks, a walkway and a bikeway. The upper level, originally used for streetcars, has two lanes in each direction, and the lower level is one-way and has three lanes in peak direction. It once carried New York State Route 27 and later was planned to carry Interstate 478. No tolls are charged for motor vehicles to use the Manhattan Bridge.

 

The original pedestrian walkway on the south side of the bridge was reopened after forty years in June 2001. It was also used by bicycles until late summer 2004, when a dedicated bicycle path was opened on the north side of the bridge, and again in 2007 while the bike lane was used for truck access during repairs to the lower motor roadway.

 

Main span: 1,470 ft (448 m)

Length of suspension cables: 3224 ft (983 m)

Total length: 6,855 ft (2,089 m)

 

The neighborhood near the bridge on the Brooklyn side, once known as Fulton Landing has been gentrified and is called DUMBO, an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.

 

To celebrate the bridge's centennial anniversary, a series of events and exhibits were organized by the New York City Bridge Centennial Commission in October 2009. These included a ceremonial parade across the Manhattan Bridge on the morning of October 4 and a fireworks display in the evening. In 2009, the bridge was also designated as a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”

― Edgar Allan Poe

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

 

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

 

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

 

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Can't wait to get to this spot during the day.

 

Some info:

 

"In 1993, the Turnpike Authority agreed to allocate funds to the construction of the connecting bridges after the Central Artery/Tunnel Project was completed. After several years with no progress, the North Bank Bridge Project received federal stimulus ARRA funding in 2009 and construction began in 2010. Construction was completed in spring 2012.

 

The pedestrian bridge is open to biking and rollerblading, in addition to walking or running, giving the public greater access to the parks. Prior to the bridge’s construction, traveling on foot from North Point Park to Paul Revere Park would take roughly 25 minutes. The new bridge, reduces the time to less than five minutes.

 

The 690-foot bridge curves under the Zakim Bridge and over the MBTA railway. The steelwork is metalized rather than painted to minimize maintenance. Energy-efficient LED light strips are installed in the bridge’s railings for aesthetics and public safety.

 

North Point Park completed two years ago is part of the New Charles River Basin, the “lost half mile” between the old Charles River Dam and the Charlestown Bridge. North Point includes a broad pedestrian path along the water’s edge and a tree-shaded bikeway along the land side of the park, and is the third park to be completed as part of the Big Dig mitigation efforts, which also included the restoration and expansion of Paul Revere Park in Charlestown and the construction of Nashua Street Park in Cambridge and Boston."

I took this photograph of a repurposed mill building, the River Lofts, in Cumberland R.I. on a sunny late autumn day.

The Kurilpa Bridge is a pedestrian and bicycle bridge in Brisbane’s inner city, linking the city centre and South Brisbane.

 

The bridge is a multiple-mast, cable-stay structure based on principles of tensegrity, an architectural and engineering system in which the structural integrity is a synergy between balanced tension and compression components. This produces a lightweight yet strong and stable structure.

 

The new bridge presents an artistic array of cables and flying struts recalling the ropes and spars of sailing ships and boats.

Waimu Shan seashore is the longest natural seashore remaining in Keelung City with a length of 5 kilometers from Waimu Shan fishing port to Aoditong Village. With the open seashore on one side and towering marine cliffs on the other, the coastal scenery is spectacular. As the only remaining sandy seashore in Keelung, the beach near Aoditong Village is small but magnificent. In summer, people go to the beach and have fun swimming. The nearby Octopus Swimming Pool is also a great choice for some fun for people who are afraid to swim in the sea. The sunrise at sea in summer is a view not to be missed. It is always refreshing to listen to the sound of the crashing waves and watching the changes of colorful clouds. The seashore and the reef rocks sculptured by the ocean over a long period of time are also a must-see.

 

Situated in the scenic waterfront area of Waimu Shan, the enclosed 3m wide 1.2 km long Waimu Shan Bikeway is the first tourist bikeway ever built in Keelung. Visitors can walk, jog and ride freely and safely within this closed tourist bikeway to enjoy the caress of the sea breeze. As the bikeway is just next to the coastal highway, visitors can look over the Keelung Isle on the great green sea and at the cargo ships at sea or waiting to berth at the Keelung Harbor to unload their cargo. Walking or riding on the bikeway will surely help you relieve the stress of everyday life.

 

Visitors can get to the seashore from the path next to the bikeway car park to enjoy fishing, listen to the crashing waves, and watch the reef rocks sculptured by the ocean over a long period of time. Visitors may go to the Aoditong Village to have a fun swim. If there is enough time and energy and if visitors want to sweat a bit, they can go hiking at the historic forest Trail in the Zhongshan Valley next to the bikeway car park. It takes about 40-60 minutes to travel back and forth once. The 950-meter-long Wenxing Forest Trail near the Tudigong Temple at the end of the bikeway is another choice. After a 30-minute-walk, you can get to the sightseeing platform at Lover's Lake. It is the best spot to see the entire view of the Sinbin Highway and Waimu Shan Fishing Port.

Fog rising from the Champlain Canal in Waterford NY.

Hidden under a thick canopy of vegetation lies the Old Champlain Canal. The old towpath along the canal has been restored as a multi-use recreational trail through the Town of Waterford. As you ride along the bike path you will see remains of the old canal and it's locks. There are several informational signs along the towpath explaining past operations of the canal.

 

The Champlain Canal was originally built in 1832 and connected the Hudson River in Waterford to Lake Champlain in Whitehall. This area is now part of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.

 

About one mile north from the trailhead is Lock 2 on the present day Erie Canal. This is the first of five locks in a series referred to as the Waterford Flight. Boats are lifted 169 feet from the Hudson River around the Cohoes Falls to the Mohawk River. The bike trail continues around the lock. Follow the signage to the next section that starts at Broad St, where the trail has been extended north for several miles. Views of Vermont with active railroad tracks in the foreground are off to the east. The west side of the canal has a steep grade which was utilized during the original construction. The trail fades away into a landfill to the north.

 

Directions: Fulton Avenue

From the north, take Exit 8a off of the Northway(I-87). Head east on Grooms Rd (Rte 91). Cross over Rte 9 and continue on Guideboard Rd (Rte. 94). This turns into Middletown Rd(Rte. 96) to the Town of Waterford. Make a right onto Saratoga Ave (Rte 32). Stay on Saratoga Ave until you see the McDonald's on the right. Make a left onto Fulton Ave. Park in the park at the end of the road. The bike path starts on the north end of the park.
