University Heights Bridge

The Universith Heights Bridge connects 207th street between Manhattan and the Bronx. It is a swing bridge that was designed by Alfred P. Boller and incorporates a swing span that was originally built in 1895 and used as the Broadway Bridge. It opened for traffic on January 8, 1908.

Boller also designed the Madison Avenue, 145th Street and Macombs Dam bridges, which explains the stylistic similarities in elegant 19th century ornamentation.
