    Default Crossing

    I am new to NYC and live in the shadow of Hell Gate Bridge. I am wanting to cross it and was wondering if anyone can give info on how to get up into/onto it for film and photography.
    thanks.

    Excellent. I've never actually been right up to its base. Great bridge.

    It was a pretty cool bridge for vintage toy toy trains as well!
