Light and Sound Downtown

Both Light and Sound installations are at the bridge that spans the “daylighted” Saw Mill River in Van der Donck Park. Enjoy Downtown Yonkers this summer. Walk to the Van der Donck Park Bridge, opposite the Yonkers historic Beaux Arts railroad station, and see two public art installations: John Morton’s Sound Bridge and Erwin Redl’s Saw Mill River Suspension.

 

Sound Bridge created by John Morton and Saw Mill River Suspension by Erwin Redl are part of the project generated by a National Endowment for the Arts “Our Town” grant awarded to the Hudson River Museum and the City of Yonkers, enabling them to collaborate in the revitalization of historic Downtown Yonkers.
