Notes
Survey number HAER NY-199
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N501).
Part of building/structure is in Bronx, Bronx County, NY.
Significance: The University Heights Bridge, a steel Pratt/Howe truss, pin-connected, rim bearing swing span draw, with Warren truss approach spans, is one of the oldest swing-type bridges and the third oldest major bridge in New York City. It is the work of some of America's most prominent late 19th. century engineers. Although the bridge originally was built at the northern end of Manhattan, continuing Broadway into the Bronx, it was moved to its present site in a complex process beginning in 1905. It is important as an example of circa 1900 bridge technology, and was a vital link in the extension of the Harlem River, which greatly contributed to the development of New York City. It was designated a New York City Landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1984.
