A Walkway Over The Hudson!

Dear Readers,

I love New York and I love the Hudson River, so I was very pleased to attend a great fundraising event for a wonderful New York State Park.

Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park is a linear walkway spanning the Hudson River from Poughkeepsie, NY to Highland, NY.   At 212 feet tall and 1.28 miles long, it is the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world!

This incredible walkway was once an old abandoned railroad bridge.  Its transformation into a pedestrian park was made possible by a group of determined New Yorkers who formed the nonprofit, Walkway Over The Hudson, forging a public private partnership to make it happen.

This walkway is a must-see if you live nearby or are visiting New York!

Enjoy the photos!
