Get a bird’s-eye view of a man-made marvel’s ability to alter a local landscape. The gorge you see below you plays an integral role in preventing flooding here when major storms-like Hurricane Irene in 2011 and Superstorm Sandy in 2012-suddenly drive up the water levels. If you plan to stand on this bridge for long, pick a sunny day and be sure to steer clear of traffic. At this location, the land around the gorge is owned by New York City and is not accessible to the public.
