Can anyone help identify this railroad bridge? The raised structure continues to curve to the right out of the photo. It is very long.
Unfortunately, I don't have any clues about this image.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge, in Sydney, Australia, was strongly influenced in its cosmetic design by the Hell Gate Bridge (bridge commissioners managed a round-the-world junket to inspect bridges to use as models...), but this looks like the original in New York.

Hell Gate Bridge was built for, and owned by, the New York Connecting Railroad, which was jointly owned (50%/50%) by the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad.

Although jointly owned by the two railroads, only the New Haven Railroad operated trains over the bridge, passenger trains operating between Pennsylvania Station (and points south) and Boston, freight trains to and from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn for carfloat service to the PRR's Greenville, Jersey City yard.
