ROCHESTER

Why I love my hometown...and sometimes why I do not
The Hojack Swing Bridge
An innovative train bridge that graced our river for over 100 years before being torn down less than a year ago. I cannot think of many other infrastructures so unique as our center pivoting train bridge…it must have cantilevered nearly 100’ feet in either direction from its center point.
Beautifully captured just before its fall by Mark Payton, an immensely talented illustrator from Rochester.
