A little short


To the editor:

(re: “Iconic bridge gets a facelift,” Oct. 26)

Your Oct. 26 report on planned renovations for the Henry Hudson Bridge stated that at the time it opened in 1937, it was the longest fixed arch bridge in the world. 

That distinction belongs to the Hell Gate-connecting railroad bridge owned by Amtrak, spanning Queens and the Bronx, which exceeds its span by almost 200 feet, and opened in 1917.
