Nightshot: Feb 28th. Northern tip of Manhattan @ 10pm.
Spuyten Duyvil Swing Bridge, Amtrak’s Empire Corridor.

The bridge is used by approximately 30 trains per day and is opened over 1,000 times every year, connecting the Spuyten Duyvil Creek with the Hudson River to the west. The New Jersey Palisades - a dramatic row of basalt cliffs formed about 200 million years ago at the end of the Triassic Period - loom across the Hudson, casting dinosaur shadows with every setting sun. The native Lenape referred to the canyon and the geological palisades as weehawken, or “cliffs that look like rows of trees.”
