Boylan Bridge offers one of the best views of the Downtown Raleigh skyline. Located in Boylan Heights, a historic neighborhood in Raleigh, North Carolina, the bridge spans multiple tracks of the Boylan Wye, a Y-shaped railroad junction in Downtown Raleigh.
Completed in July of 2018, Raleigh Union Station sits in the middle of the Boylan Wye and is the seventh-busiest train station in the Southeast.
With excellent views of the Boylan Wye and Raleigh Union Station as foreground, Boylan Bridge makes for stunning cityscape photography of Downtown Raleigh… especially when a train passes through.
The bridge has nice wide sidewalks for safe photography and there is street parking in the nearby neighborhood off Dupont Circle.
