New York

Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg (New York Central) [Conrail]
Rochester, New York
April 21, 1976

Just north of downtown Rochester, New York the Genesee River drops 96 feet into the Genesee River Gorge on its way to Lake Ontario. In this view looking south towards downtown from the Smith Street bridge the former Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg's seemingly spindly trestle crosses the gorge just in front of the High Falls. Behind it the New York Central's mainline passes over the river upstream of the falls, with the Rochester cityscape behind.
