New NY Bridge fans looking for a firsthand view of construction from the Rockland shoreline now have a “front row seat” to the action. Nyack’s new fishing pier at Memorial Park is now open and offers spectators a sweeping view of the Hudson River and the bustling project site.
The new viewing platform mirrors its partner across the river in Tarrytown’s Scenic Hudson RiverWalk Park. The easy-to-access platforms feature viewing scopes and informational panels, including a spotter’s guide that identifies the various types of construction equipment and vessels located on the water.
“We are so excited that this project has come to fruition,” said Nyack’s Mayor Jen White. “The viewing platform is absolutely gorgeous and when you stand out there you feel like you are in the middle of the Hudson River with an intimate view of the new Tappan Zee.”
A $50,000 grant from the New NY Bridge Community Benefits Program helped pay for the viewing platform signage, equipment and seating.
