Facing NE on Rt. 209

The Neversink Area Museum is on the left after the bridge. I recommend a visit there.

Comment is of course wrong. Bridge was there in 2011, but is gone now. Streetview has some really old and blurry views of the bridge, but the satellite view is much more current and shows it's been replaced by some boring concrete thing.

This bridge was actually in Ulster County, not Orange County. It was torn down many years ago (maybe 15)and replaced with a concrete bridge. Like most replacement bridges, they just do not have the character that the steel ones had.
