Hudson River Greenway Bridge
Posted July 12, 2012, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This is a former railroad grade separation, now carrying pedestrians over railroad. The city apparently has a ton of money to waste, since it plans to demo/replace this historic bridge rather than rehab it.
