Thanks Stairman, always wanted to get a shot on that street. Wanted to be in the middle of the intersection but I was alone and it's busier than it looks down there.

Agree, that is a great pic, thanks for the look at NY.

Here's an old iron bridge that me & the Ol'lady crossed off our list last weekend.
It's located on the Hendricks/Putnam Co. line here in Indiana. ( 39░49'50.47" N 86░41'12.02" W )

View looking south:


View looking north:


The road has a bit of washboard gravel to the north and the McCloud Nature Park is located right around the corner just southeast of there. I believe there is also another old restored iron bridge located within the Nature park itself although it was simply way to hot for us to check it out the day we were there.

Tunnel carrying McCoy's Ferry Rd. under the old C&O Canal near Big Pool, MD.



Same place from the inside out but a two-fer, trusses for R.R. trestle in the background!



The railroad trestle at the above location from a slightly different vantage point.



Road to campground at Ft. Frederick State Park, Big Pool, MD. - is there a sportster next to an 18th century fort thread?



Kemps Mill bridge over Conococheague Creek near Williamsport, MD. The original bridge here was washed out by hurricane Agnes in 1972. This one-lane "temporary bridge" was errected sometime after...



I may have posted it before but just ran across this one in my album and since it's one of my favorites, you're getting it again.
The contrasts in this shot are just too many to list, which is why I like it so!
The famous (infamous) "Burnside Bridge" over Antietam Creek on the Antietam Nat'l Battlefield.

Nice little ride to collect some bridges for ya'll today.

Anderson's Mill Bridge near Mercersburg, PA.



Martin's Mill bridge near Greencastle, PA.



Twin spans of I-70 over Licking Creek near Big Pool, MD.



I think this one is Heise Rd.(?) near Mercersburg, PA. It's a steel mesh deck and the bunker-looking concrete building behind my bike, I think is an old power plant. There is a dam between it and the bridge.



U.S. 40 "National Pike" bridge over Licking Creek, near Big Pool, MD.

I ain't done yet!

Pectonville Rd. over Licking Creek.


Upper Lanes Run near Clearspring, MD.



Old steel mesh deck over Lanes Run near Clearspring, MD. Intersection of Hanging Rock & Catholic Church Rds.



Okay... we've made exceptions to include ferries, tunnels and dams in the "bridge" thread so here's my entry for how about a... FORD!



This is an actual public road (Slabtown Rd.) that fords Licking Creek in the mountains between Clearspring and Hancock, MD. No, I did not ride across the creek!

Took a ride to try to catch another tiny P.O. before the government closed it down... I was too late for that but picked up a couple more bridges along the way.
This is one of the R.R. bridges into Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. Harper's Ferry is a National Park site, where "John Brown's Raid" took place shortly before the American Civil War. Someone else posted some other photos from there earlier in this thread.



Same bridge from a slightly different angle to catch the train station at the far end.



This is the other R.R. bridge into Harper's Ferry. There is a pedestrian bridge afixed to the side of this span to allow park visitors to cross the (Potomac) river to visit associated sites on the Maryland side. One of the famous "spires of Harper's Ferry" is captured in this shot.



One last one from today. This is a bridge over the B&O R.R. tracks before they cross the previously seen bridge. Just behind this bridge is a tunnel carrying the tracks through the mountain on the right. The tunnel exits immediately at the river bridge but unfortunately, due to traffic I could not get a shot of it. In the background you can see the narrow "water gap" the Potomac River makes here through the Blue Ridge or Appalachian mountains. The Appalachian Trail passes nearby, using the above seen pedestrian bridge to cross the Potomac and the headquarters for the Appalachian Trail Conference is located in Harper's Ferry. ...sorry for rambling, here's the bridge.

Whats also interesting to me is that a lot of these old steel bridges are being replaced, with unremarkable concrete, in fact in most cases you can't even tell your going over a bridge.

Its nice to record some of these before their gone.
