Lecture: The History of The Bear Mountain Bridge | In Tarrytown NYThursday Aug/10/2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
At its completion in 1924, the Bear Mountain Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world (for about 19 months) and the first automobile bridge to cross the Hudson River south of Albany. It also surpassed the 1888 Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge as the southernmost crossing of the river.
In this lecture, historian Frank Goderre will discuss the history of this iconic bridge using many rarely-seen photographs.
