Tucked in between Amtrak rails and the Hudson River, Poughkeepsie's Victor C. Waryas Park offers a quiet little get-away in a busy city. This view, brightened with fall's glowing maples, captures a freshly painted Mid-Hudson Bridge, refurbished during a lead abatement project. Renamed in 1994 to recognize former resident, governor and president, the bridge now sees the prefix Franklin D. Roosevelt. Completed in 1930, the bridge received plenty of attention, often noted as superbly beautiful, and one of the very finest suspension bridges anywhere.
