ABSTRACT
The article features the transformation of the 120-year-old steel truss Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge, which links New York City and Albany, into the Walkway Over the Hudson elevated public park and promenade. The project was reportedly timed for the Quadricentennial Celebration of the river's exploration by Henry Hudson. It is stated that visitors who stroll, jog or bike atop the Walkway are afforded a great view of the Hudson River.
