Located only a few hours from the bustling metropolis of New York City, is the small community Catskill, NY. During the 1880s, Catskill was a lively community and attracted visitors who wanted to enjoy the beauty of nature. In 1882 this railway bridge was constructed for the Catskill Mountain Railway. The first of three crossings of the Catskill Creek, the bridge was crucial to transport passengers to summer resorts located in the Catskill Mountains. Two bridges still stand today, one now serves as a walking path and the other continues to be used for train travel.
