The restored Delaware Aqueduct Bridge (see photo), the oldest working suspension bridge in the U.S., is located between Lackawaxen, PA and Minisink Ford, NY. From Germany to Pennsylvania and then New Jersey, John Roebling became rich and famous for his patented use of spun wire rope. He is best known for designing the Brooklyn Bridge, but take your summer vacation at the Upper Delaware Scenic & Recreational River. Walk this historic bridge for free.
