Bridge Street Bridge

Originally carried the Upper Road to Belleville across the Second River. Now carries only local traffic, probably why it has survived. Built of local brownstone, the same stone used in many Manhattan row houses of the 19th century. Small amount of damage to the west side parapet and erosion on a few stones. Image shows the east side arch, which (it is said) has the date 1867 in the eroded keystone.
