“Very Peaceful”

Reviewed March 31, 2013

Mt Grandparents lived in Lackawaxen from 1947-1977. They had an Ice Cream Parlour. Walking to and from the bridge was wonderful. When I was there; ( 60,s-70's ), the bridge did not have that side solid wall. It had just a little split rail fence type thing about 4 feet high. No view obstruction from the bridge. I had not been there in years, when I made a spontanious trip to the bridge in 1995. I watched as the bridge was being renovated into it's current state. The work was done by supervised prisoners. We made the trip to show my children my Grandparents Ice Cream Parlour. Roubded the bend; Bham......smoldering grounds. A Control burn had been done 3 days earlier. The garage and white concrete "Stoop" still stands. My Grandfathersname was Ben Franklin. Thanks for reading.

John Roebling built this years before he did the Brooklyn Bridge. It was originally designed as an aqueduct to carry coal barges over the Delaware river. Now fully restored, you can drive across it without getting wet or hitting a barge. Stop and check out the construction. Quite a feat in its day.

An interesting bridge in a beautiful area along the Delaware River. In a few minutes one can cross from Pennsylvania to New York and visa versa. This time of year it is a great sight, with the leaves changing and the river flowing south to the sea.

It is amazing to think that just 165 years ago this was an aqueduct carrying goods from the Hudson River to the Delaware River. Its like a walk back in history!
