This bridge is one of many across the beautiful Hudson River. This is a popular crossing, being one of the main routes across. One should expect there to be traffic on this bridge, heavy during peak hours.

Travel with caution, bridge getting a new surface. Under repair right now for about 2 years. Slow going. Disliked the holdups, but can not avoid.

First off, locals refer to this as the "Newburgh-Beacon Bridge"! Nobody I know, including the New York State Bridge Authority and Department of Transportation, calls it the "Hamilton Fish Bridge".

3 miles roundtrip, and it's a big hill. Lot's of wind the whole way, but beautiful views. Noisy, though!

Picturesque views while walking, running or riding a bike. It is very soothing to be near the water. Walkway shakes a little during high traffic. No dogs allowed.

Yes there is a walkway with nice views, however, you're better off driving up to The Walkway Over the Hudson where it's closed to traffic and has beautiful views and it is quiet.

Nice bridge with even nicer views of the Hudson River. Whether on the Newburgh (Orange County) or Beacon (Dutchess County), nice walkway to travel between the two counties. Usually never crowded and at $1.50, its the cheapest way to cross the Hudson........

Great walk with beautiful views. The drawback is the traffic noise. Very loud. And the bridge is named for a politician.
