155th Street Bridge

In the image below it’s hard to imagine that this bucolic scene is looking at what will become the 155th Street bridge between Harlem and Yankee’s Stadium.

Note that the bridge in the background is the Croton aqueduct bridge – High Bridge – with it’s full complement of masonry arches (the central core of which, were torn down and replaced with a steel arch for Harlem River navigation in the 19th Century).
