Rare Video

From a 10 minute video about the 3rd Ave. El in New York, a short clip that shows the Bronx Terminal.

It isn’t much, but just after the swing bridge moves, the terminal can be seen in the background, under the bridge, at the 38 second mark. Also shown is a good shot of one of the Harlem River tugs, likely on its way back from one of the other Bronx Terminals.

Interesting how the rails on the swing bridge are bent upwards to clear the track leading to it.
