OLDNYC.COM--> Virtual Tour --> Hell Gate Picture Gallery #3

Another view of the Randallís Island Viaduct, with "Little Hell Gate" bridge to the far right. "Little Hell Gate" bridge is a bridge consisting of inverted trusses.



Here is a shot of the intricate girder work that supports the mounting points between the main arch and the gothic tower. Notice all of the rivets that were utilized in the construction of this support.



The New York Connecting Railroad plaque mounted on the base of the Queens-side tower. Notice that the plaque says "East River Arch Bridge". It was not called "Hell Gate" bridge when the plaque was originally installed.



Wallace P. Heller provided Oldnyc.com with this photo of  a Long Island Rail Road engine at Sunnyside Yard.  The photograph was taken in 1947.
