Broadway Bridge

I happened to be near the Broadway Bridge the other day as the subway was crossing over and a Circle Line boat was going underneath. The Broadway Bridge crosses the Spuyten Duyvil creek at the northern tip of Manhattan, linking the Manhattan neighborhood of Inwood with Marble Hill in the Bronx. (Although people have told me that Marble Hill is technically still Manhattan.)

Cool bridge shot! I was wondering if the bridge raises when a boat needs pass under ...

A good catch, a train on the bridge while a Circle Liner is passing below. Spuyten Duyvil has a rich history and here is more on Marble Hill's location - man moved the river!:

Hi Lori! Amazing bridge this one!!

Sorry for the long delay, but after one year work, I got my official week off and, as always, the week before was terrible and the return awful... ;). Furthermore, there was 09.09.09, which for me was a bit depressing, as I entered a Club 60 I would prefer to postpone the joining... ;))
I’ll try to find some more time in the coming week to enjoy your other posts!!

Blogtrotter is now in Turkey. Enjoy and have a fabulous weekend!
