Photographer's Note

Of the nine bridges crossing the Ohio River at Cincinnati, only one is purple. And only one is for people only. After a $4 million restoration, the former L&N Railroad Bridge between Newport and Cincinnati is now a pedestrian walkway. Officially named the Newport Southbank Bridge, the Purple People Bridge is longest connector of its kind in the country that links two states. Within a 10-minute walk from either side of the bridge you can: • Watch the Reds or Bengals at Great American Ball Park and Paul Brown Stadium. • Grab lunch or dinner at a wide range of restaurants, from the eclectic collection at Newport on the Levee to the newest sports on Cincinnati's Fountain Square. • Have a picnic at Cincinnati's Bicentennial Commons at Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove or along the floodwall in Newport. • Tour the Newport Aquarium or the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center near the historic Roebling Suspension Bridge.
