New York, State of
Great New York State piece issued to generate revenue for the construction of the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge (pictured on this piece) in the Hudson Valley.

The Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, (officially the Hamilton Fish Newburgh-Beacon Bridge) is a cantilever toll bridge that spans the Hudson River in New York State carrying NY 52 and I-84 between Newburgh and Beacon. The first (westbound, north of other span) span was opened to traffic on November 2, 1963 as a two-lane (one in each direction) bridge.

Although original plans called for a four-lane bridge, funding difficulties resulted in the reduction in lanes. This span was designed by Modjeski & Masters and constructed by Frederick Snare, Drave and Bethlehem Steel.

The original bridge won the 1965 American Institute of Steel Construction "most beautiful bridge" award for long span bridges. Modeski & Masters used a curved cantilever rather than the more typical peaked cantilever as seen on (for example) the Tappan Zee Bridge.
