DescriptionThe Washington Bridge - not to be confused with the George Washington Bridge - spans the borough of the Bronx and upper Manhattan Island across the Harlem River. When the steel twin arch bridge was opened in 1889, this portion of Harlem was a well-off, gentrified neighborhood of broad, tree-lined streets.
