A new elevator at Walkway Over the Hudson was put into operation Thursday, affording new access and scenic views. Officials hope the elevator helps add to the more than 700,000 Walkway visitors a year.
Democratic State Senator Terry Gipson took the 70-second ride 21 stories up in the elevator that has three glass observation windows.
“It was great,” Gipson remarked. “It’s a very scenic ride. I would highly recommend it. You get to see a very unique view that you can’t see from anywhere else.”
