This bridge, having been built in the 1960s, is not a very
old bridge to be considered historic, however as a large steel arch bridge
it does indeed have some historic value. In addition, it is an attractive
structure, and it does feature rivets as the primary (if not exclusive)
fastener type on the bridge. Rivets are now a historic fastener type, only
used in high quality historic bridge restoration projects. It also is
visually appropriate for its location, since it compliments the two much
older historic arch bridges nearby on the Harlem River.
Structurally, this bridge is two arch bridges side by side
sharing a single deck.
