An old train bridge that's been stuck up in the air since the 1970's. There are two sides, the side that leads to the drawbridge part, and the flat side. The bridge is also fairly covered in graffiti.

    Also, the tracks that the bridge carries run through the abandoned East Side Railroad tunnel nearby.
