The Bear Mountain Bridge is yet another photo in my bridge series that I took from a moving train. This is a suspension bridge over the Hudson River and was put into operation in 1924.
This bridge connects Peeksill in Westchester county on the east side of the river, to Orange County in the west. The area is very scenic and Bear Mountain Park is a popular recreational destination.
Many travel this Bridge to get too and from another well known national institution, West Point, which is located just about 20 minutes from the east side of the bridge.
