    GATESHEAD MILLENNIUM BRIDGE

    Since the ancient Romans built the first span across the River Tyne between the towns of Gateshead and Newcastle in northeastern England, bridges have loomed large in the local landscape.

    To visit the RiverEast Center in Portland, Oregon, is to stand at a major crossroads. The newly renovated former warehouse building sits along the Willamette River, just across from downtown, at the base of the Hawthorne Bridge. This location affords unobstructed views of boats and cars streaming by in the foreground with the classic downtown Portland skyline behind. The RiverEast Center also sits beside a massive freeway bridge and overpass to the west and a railroad track busy with freight and occasional passenger trains to the east.
