The State of New York condemned The Clinton Street Bridge
in July of 2009. We had two weeks notice before our first summer performance. With the wonderful volunteers of Whitehall we moved the entire contents of the theater to another location that we already had. The actual structure stayed up for another 4-6 years. The bridge itself was removed and not replaced in 2015.
My husband David Mohn and his friends had the idea of a unique theater on the bridge. He designed the theater twice once as a Covered Bridge. We were not allowed to create that theater as SHPO State Historic Preservation Office of NY said we would have to show the Thru Trusses of the bridge because the bridge was historical in nature.
My husband passed on in 2012 and Clinton St. Bridge is now history! the Arts and Recreation Commission Continues in his name.
