The Hell Gate Bridge, originally the New York Connecting Railroad Bridge or The East River Arch Bridge, is a steel through arch railroad bridge in New York City. The bridge crosses the Hell Gate, a strait of the East River, between Astoria in Queens and Randalls and Wards Islands in Manhattan. The bridge is the largest of three bridges that form the Hell Gate complex. An inverted bowstring truss bridge with four spans crosses the Little Hell Gate (now filled in); and a fixed truss bridge crosses the Bronx Kill (now narrowed by fill). Together with approaches, the bridges are more than long. The Tyne Bridge in Newcastle, England, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia derived their own designs from the Hell Gate Bridge. The Sydney Harbour Bridge, however, is about 60% larger than the Hell Gate Bridge.
