Yeah I remember that too. Its a miracle it never collapsed.
I remember that you could actually see the traffic speeding along route 3 in between the cracks in the floorboards. How that thing passed safety inspection in the first place is beyond me.
HOT PRETZELS COLD WATER HEEEERE
That's rte 120 actually, but yeah, the original bridge was very scary to me. I remember seeing the cars whizzing by below too.
And there was always a guy selling pretzels just outside that bridge on the Giants Stadium side after the game was over. Can't imagine that he could've sold very many of them.
