Forget Madison County! Here are the Majestic Bridges of New York City - InfoBarrel: "One of the unheralded but still strikingly beautiful accesses to new York City is the Bayonne bridge that connects the state of New jersey with the city across the Kill Van Kull. This bridge is by most accounts one of least majestic of the bridges of New York City and yet is the fourth largest steel arch bridge in the world.
The Bayonne Bridge is also notable for the current renovation project that is planned for it. The bridge is an impediment to any ships wishing to enter the Port of Newark. With the expansion of the Panama Canal, larger container ships will be visiting this port but would be unable to pass under the current bridge. The civil engineers engaged to solve the problem have decided to build a rod bed above the existing one and then demolish the lower level. Bridge technology will take another leap forward on the majestic bridges of New York City."
