The Tappan Zee Bridge is the largest infrastructure project under way in the United States. The HSRC is pleased to offer an exclusive opportunity to observe this important undertaking from a unique vantage point. Join us on the River Rose, a Mississippi-style paddle wheeler, as we cruise along the Rockland shore of the Hudson River to the Tappan Zee Bridge.

Participants will view the current bridge construction from vantage points that are as near to the bridge as LEGALLY and SAFELY possible.

Narration and commentary will be provided by historians from the HSRC, as well as by leaders of the current bridge project (availability and conditions permitting). These guides will also be available to answer questions you have about the past, present and future of the Tappan Zee Bridge.

On our return trip, we will enjoy a cruise along the Westchester shoreline.

I REMEMBER WALKING FROM THE OLD "TZ" HIGH SCHOOL/GRAMMAR SCHOOL IN PIERMONT WITH MY ENITRE CLASS AND TEACHERS TO SEE THE NEW "MARVEL" OF THE TAPPAN ZEE BRIDGE... NEW YORK STATE GOVERNOR HARRIMAN WAS IN OFFICE AT THE TIME AND HIS LIMO AND MOTORCADE SPED ACROSS THE NEW BRIDGE AS OUR CLASS WALKED ACROSS THE BRIDGE TO THE IRVINGTON SIDE...IT WAS A VERY, VERY "COOL" DAY FOR ALL US KIDS.
