125th Street Viaduct (Riverside Drive) | F. Stuart Williamson | 1910 | New York
The elevated steel highway of the 125th Street viaduct, called the Riverside Drive Viaduct, between Tiemann Place and 135th Street and rising over Twelfth Avenue, is shouldered by masonry approaches. The viaduct proper was made of open hearth medium steel, comprising twenty-six spans, or bays, whose hypnotic repetition is much appreciated from underneath at street level.
The girders over Manhattan Street (now 125th Street) were the largest ever built at the time.
