Everybody in Buffalo knows this bridge, probably not from this angle. =======


Always wanted to know why it was decommissioned in the up position? Yeah…I have no idea. =======


I DO know however that it was owned by Nickel Plate RR to run grain to NYC and it has been dead for a loooong time. It is what’s called a “Single leaf, through truss, Bascule bridge” (weighted draw bridge). The down bridge next to it is still used by CTX daily, probably to bring garbage to Jersey or something not as awesome as in 1910). =======


There you just learned something about your city AND bridges. =======
