About the event:
The Hell Gate Channel and the bridge that crosses it are two of New York City’s most impressive yet overlooked modes of transportation in the city’s history. The waterway was considered a treacherous but necessary means of traveling out of the city by sea since the Dutch arrived in the 17th century. Its late 19th century reformation would require the largest explosion the world had experienced. And the bridge that would cross it in the early 20th century would be considered one of the city’s most daring and impressive pieces of transportation infrastructure ever undertaken at that point in history.
