Notes
Survey number HAER NY-319
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N908).
Building/structure dates: 1912 initial construction
Significance: At Vanderbilt Mansion, Frederick Vanderbilt created a country estate with a picturesque carriage drive system and bridges that complemented and heightened the beauty of the natural landscape. One of a system of bridges built during the Vanderbilt period of ownership, the structure is of plate girder construction encased in concrete, which is unusual. The span is somewhat decorative as opposed to most railroad bridges, which serve a utilitarian function and usually reflect that fact.
