Timber Bridge at Longpoint Corridor: Connection between NeighborhoodsCrème
Between Brooklyn and Queens, New York there is a unique opportunity to promote a connection between the neighborhoods of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and Long Island City, Queens.
Past & present: A history of two communities connected
The neighborhoods of Long Island City, Queens, and Greenpoint, Brooklyn were once connected by the Vernon Avenue Bridge which provided multiple transportation options including automobile, horse carriage, trolley, and pedestrian foot traffic. The Vernon Ave Bridge was eventually demolished for structural reasons, and thus became a lost piece of New York history.
The Pulaski Bridge was constructed a short way up the creek, and replaced the Vernon Ave Bridge in 1954.
