Birthday Celebration Day 2 – Newfield Covered Bridge

We celebrated my 61st birthday during a 3-night vacation in New York’s Finger Lakes region. Our home base was at the Best Western Plus The Hammondsport Hotel in Hammondsport, NY.  Our hotel accommodation included a complimentary breakfast.

We started our second day of vacation (Thursday, February 23), which was my birthday, with a large breakfast.  We had scrambled eggs, sausage, toast (Bob), home fries (me), some kind of coconut and chocolate pastry, orange juice and a banana (me).  There were even more breakfast selections to choose from than what we selected!

We departed the hotel at 7:00 am en route Ithaca NY, where we wanted to check out two waterfalls there and another one a little farther north of the city.

As we approached Ithaca, a sign pointing to Newfield caught my eye.  A few weeks ago, using Pinterest, I had “pinned” an article on my travel board about the Newfield Covered Bridge.  As we were less than 10 miles from the bridge, we made the drive to Newfield to see the covered bridge.  It was our first time to visit this covered bridge. The visit to the covered bridge was a nice birthday surprise!

It carries Bridge Street over Cayuga Creek.
The truss is a Town Lattice with Arch with a span of 115 feet.

Newfield Covered Bridge is the oldest surviving covered bridge still open to daily vehicular traffic in the state of New York.  It is the only surviving covered bridge located in Tompkins County.

From Newfield we returned to Ithaca and began our waterfall tour — the subject of my next blog post.
