FRENCH KING BRIDGE
On our way back we stopped at the french king bridge. While walking towards the center we could see many signs asking people no to jump.
The structure is a three-span “cantilever arch” bridge that crosses the Connecticut River on the border between the towns of Erving and Gill, Massachusetts, United States.
The bridge was opened to traffic on September 10, 1932.
It was named the “Most Beautiful Steel Bridge” of 1932 by the American Institute of Steel Construction. The bridge was rebuilt in 1992, and refurbished in 2008–2010.
The Massachusetts museum of contemporary art is a museum in a converted Arnold Print Works factory building complex located in North Adams, Massachusetts. It is one of the largest centers for contemporary visual art and performing arts in the United States.
The statue of the indian is a road attraction in our way back to Boston.
