The Historical Society of Rockland County Invites You to Join Us on a Daytrip

Tappan Zee Bridge Experience:
Past, Present and Future

When: Friday, July 20, 2018, rain or shine!

Price: $93 per person (HSRC Members); $98 per person (Non-members). Includes boat transportation, guided tour, and box lunch

The building of the new bridge over the Tappan Zee has been among the largest infrastructure projects in the United States. Since 2014, the HSRC has been thrilled to offer exclusive opportunities for people of all ages to see this important undertaking from a unique, on-the-water vantage point.

Seniors, adults, children -- all are welcome to join us on the Mississippi-style paddle wheeler River Rose for what will be our final cruise to the Tappan Zee bridge construction site. Participants will see dismantling of the old Tappan Zee Bridge and final construction phases of the new bridge from viewing points as near to the bridge as are 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 bridge over the Tappan Zee.

The "Tappan Zee Bridge Experience: Past, Present, and Future" boat trip series received a Greater Hudson Heritage Network AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE in 2017.
