Newkirk Viaduct Monument (abandoned and vandalized) located along NE corridor RR tracks

The Newkirk Viaduct Monument was erected in 1839 in present-day Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad to mark the 1838 completion of the Newkirk Viaduct, also called the Grays Ferry Bridge, over the Schuylkill River....The railroad named the bridge for its president, Matthew Newkirk (1794–1868), a Philadelphia business and civic leader, and erected an obelisk, the Newkirk Viaduct Monument, along its western approach.
