Old Willis Avenue Bridge moved to NJPosted: Updated:
A 110-year-old bridge that spanned NewYork's Harlem River is temporarily calling New Jersey home.
Tugboats nudged the Old Willis Avenue Bridge into Jersey CityTuesday.
It once carried 70,000 vehicles daily between upper Manhattanand the South Bronx.
Plans call for melting and recycling the old bridge's steel. Itsconcrete parts will be made into fill.
The bridge was known as "the wall" to those who run the NewYork City marathon because it was the 20-mile mark on the courseand some runners couldn't make it farther.
A prebuilt 350-foot-long bridge connecting upper Manhattan andthe South Bronx was installed in August.
