Crossing the Hudson: Historic Bridges and Tunnels of the River by Donald Wolf

Crossing the Hudson reveals the often multileveled stories of the river's bridges and tunnels, from timber arch and truss bridges on stone piers to long-span suspension and cantilevered bridges, railroad tunnels, and improvements in iron and steel technology, providing a history of where, why, when, and how these structures were built; the social, political, and commercial forces that influenced decisions to erect them; the personalities of the planners and builders; the unique connection between builder and bridge; and the design and construction techniques that turned mythical goals into structures of utility and beauty.
