    You know, I remember selling umbrellas near that bridge.

  2. Closest bridge I can think of here in Australia is the Grafton Bridge in Northern New South Wales. It is a double-decker bascule bridge with a road for cars on the upper level and the railway track on the lower level. The bridge was designed to raise when steamships needed to pass beneath on the Clarence River. I’m really going to have to get to New York to ride some trains one of these days. Nice post!
