Marred view for Metro-North commuters for years
A huge tractor tire that for years was mired in a shallow cove along the Hudson River just south of the Bear Mountain Bridge will no longer be an eyesore for Metro-North commuters from Beacon, Cold Spring and Garrison.
On Nov. 6, Riverkeeper, Metro-North and Sea Tow Central Hudson teamed up to haul the tire out of the mud and ship it for recycling. Special equipment was needed to extricate the six-foot-wide tire, which weighed 1,800 pounds.
