WATCHxWITNESS: “Hell Gate”
Trespassing for the sake of a great shot, Watch & Witness explore a bridge in the Bronx ominously known as “Hell Gate.” The bridge is the namesake of the treacherous turn of the East River it stands 100 ft. above. Dutch sailors named the tidal strait “Hellegat” or “Hell Gate” because of its wicked undertow. Long story short, its currents are not to to be fucked with.
Naturally, WATCHxWITNESS–the two adventurous fools they are–slipped through a few fences and took a sketchy seven mile walk on the train tracks to arrive at its open gates. “I would not be exaggerating if I said we almost died twice on these rail ways to ‘Hell Gate,’ so I think the third time might be the charm, but that’s never going to happen,” said Goldwatch to his mother.
