Old freight bridge over Dutch Kills

March 23rd, 2012

As far as I can tell, this bridge is no longer in use (although someone has fairly recently replaced part of the railing on the pier). Does anyone know the story?

    The bridge is still in use. The NY & Atlantic Railroad runs frieght trains on this line out to Eastern Long Island. Freight trains come into the area by way of the Hellgate Bridge, through the Amtrak and NJ Transit stroage yards (SunnysideYard) in Long Island City and then out to Maspeth Yard over the bridge.
