On October 3, 2009 Governor David A. Paterson opened the Walkway Over the Hudson
State Historic Park as a legacy project of the Hudson Fulton Champlain Quadricentennial. The park provides access to the Hudson River's breathtaking landscape for pedestrians, hikers, joggers, bicyclists, and people with disabilities. The bridge deck stands 212 feet above the river's surface and is 6,678 feet (1.28 miles) long, making it the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the World
-Highland Railroad Bridge was built in the late 19th century to link New York
and New England
to an extensive, nationwide railway network. For decades, it was a major rail corridor for both freight and passengers.
