I cross this bridge pretty often. Although, I don't believe it's called the Hamilton Fish Bridge--it's the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge; Hamilton Fish was the engineer. It offers a pretty nice view of Storm King, Pollepel Island (where Bannerman's Castle is), and Breakneck Ridge to the south (but not much to the north). Worth a traverse.

Tolls are the lowest north of NYC when compared to the outrageous tolls of the Tappan Zee and George Washington bridges and other tunnels closer to NYC. Traveling from northern NY State or OHIO and PA this bridge costs $1.25. Because this is a heavily traveled bridge accidents do happen. Checking traffic reports within an hour of approaching the bridge... More

I'll always have negative feelings about this bridge since my childhood home was demolished in the early '60's because it was in the way of the highway (Rt. 84) approaching the site of the yet-to-be-built bridge. But beyond that, it's just a better and quicker way of crossing the river than by ferry, which is the way we did it... More

The bridge is just that a bridge. There is absolutely nothing special about it other that the fact that it needs alot of work just like all the other NY bridges.

It gets you where you want to go with a little curve in the road on the western end. The lights are beautiful, illuminating the skyline and change often.

The Hamilton Fish Bridge is a 7000 foot span across the Hudson River between the towns of Newburgh and Beacon, NY. A metal catwalk on the south side of the bridge allows pedestrians to walk the entire length and affords a spectacular view of the river valley from a height of 135 feet. Free parking lots are located at each... More
