The Poughkeepsie Highland Railroad Bridge reopened this past Saturday, October 3, 2009 for the general public to walk, bike or run across! The 111-year-old former railroad bridge is the world's longest pedestrian span. In celebration of Henry Hudson's voyage up the river the bridge was opened to the public after it was refurbished with public and private money. Legendary Pete Seeger commemorated the opening with a few of his old favorite songs on his banjo.
A must for views of the beautiful Catskills fall foliage!
