The Park Avenue Viaduct

3/17/2013 - By Marea Edynak

The entrance to  the 2-way ramp leads to the bridge that goes around Grand Central Station and the Met Life building. The Viaduct bypasses the traffic from 40th Street to 46th street making it a favorite route for impatient taxi cab drivers.

 

Local north bound traffic uses the street shown on the right. The Met Life Building looms over the Station in the background.

 

The setting is often used as a picturesque background for movies and television episodes.

In the 2007 film, “I Am Legend”, Will Smith’s character is captured by a vampire’s snare there.

 In the 1997 film, “Men in Black”, Will Smith (this time a policeman)  pursues a perp by jumping off the viaduct

It is also shown in the 2012 film, “The Avengers”.
