Long Island City may be more well known now for condos than warehouses, but if you head east off the Pulaski Bridge the condos quickly fade to warehouses and sketchy looking strip clubs. This is where you’ll find the little Hunters Point Avenue Bridge (#19 on the McCarthy List), a little bridge which takes Hunters Point avenue over the Dutch Kill, a small inlet of the Newtown Creek.
Joe and I hit this one up last weekend. My favorite part is the sign that tells you not to go swimming.
Here’s my instagraming.
Access to the bridge is from (duh) continuing on Hunters Points Avenue from 27th St. to30th St. (or vice versa). True nerds may wish to note that this is one of the rarely seen single-leaf bascule drawbridge, meaning it raises on only one side!
