The official name is the Alfred H. Smith Memorial Bridge. The bridge is about a mile long because it goes bluff-to-bluff. I recognize Selkirk as a town that has a big railroad yard.
"Note: Span length is approximate. Longest truss span 610 feet, shorter truss span is about 405 feet." [BridgeHunter]
Looking from the east side.
The Castleton-on-Hudson Bridge is also impressive.

(new window) This video catches cranes on barges. So perhaps New York DOT understands the value of maintaining its bridges.
