There are many manmade wonders in New Jersey, one of which is the Paulinskill Viaduct.

At the time it was built in 1910, it was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world.

Photos of the interior are not included in this article as it was difficult to find graffiti without vulgarity. In addition, the address is not included as trespassing is illegal. With a road running underneath and near several hiking trails, it’s easy enough to find but we do not encourage illegal activity. What we do encourage is appreciating New Jersey’s unique history. If you’d like to get a closer look, check out the gorgeous drone video below by ESTOUCHFPV. I highly recommend watching – the footage is fascinating.
