In the late 1970s, the New York State Department of Transportation demolished nine blocks of commercial property and hundreds of residential residences to build the Hoosick Street Bridge. Today, the bridge is a monument to division. Through The Uniting Line project, local artist Jade Warrick will install murals throughout the bridge's surface area to transform and beautify the space.
