How the Walkway Was Born – A Virtual Q & A
It's hard to believe that it's been over 10 years since the Walkway Over the Hudson opened to the public. That went by quick. But the original structure goes back way further than 10 years.
Did you know that there is quite an interesting history behind what is now the Walkway? And almost nobody knows it better than Fred Schaeffer, past chairman of the Walkway nonprofit organization and a key contributor to the grassroots campaign that transformed the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge into Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park. Fred will host a virtual photo slideshow and question and answer session this Sunday, April 5 at 1PM.
From the mid 1990s to the Walkway’s opening in 2009, Fred will use his personal photography to trace the history of the adaptive reuse of the bridge and the events that made it possible. A Q&A will follow.
