The 120-year-old Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge has been transformed into a 1.25-mile-long pedestrian park—the world’s longest bridge of its kind—linking the city of Poughkeepsie and the town of Lloyd in New York.
The record for world’s longest pedestrian bridge was recently set by the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge, a 120-year-old bridge which was recently been transformed to a mile-and-a-quarter long “pedestrian park”.
