Lighthouse at Willis Avenue

Post placeholder image

For a fleeting moment, the lighthouse was on Willis Avenue. Then, the avenue kept on moving down the river. The replacement for the Willis Avenue Bridge is on it’s way to the Harlem River today. The massive steel structure was built at Coeymans, NY. Now, three tugs are towing it down the Hudson River with a Coast Guard escort leading the way. The tugs are the Elizabeth, the Margot, and the Ruby M. A small crowd of spectators and photographers gathered at the lighthouse to see the impressive bridge pass by.
