How the Walkway Was Born – A Virtual Q&A with Fred Schaeffer
April 5 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join Fred Schaeffer – past chairman of the Walkway nonprofit organization and a key contributor to the grassroots campaign that transformed the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge into Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park – for a virtual photo slideshow and question-and-answer session on Sunday, April 5 at 1 p.m.
From the mid-1990s to the Walkway’s celebrated opening in 2009, Fred will use his personal photography to trace the history of the adaptive reuse of the bridge and the fortunate confluence of events that made it possible. A Q&A will follow.
