Crybaby Bridges in Ohio

Aalsmeer flower auction (flickr). Aalsmeer is the home of the giant Dutch flower market. The complex covers some 250 acres; the auction building alone takes up some 160 acres (one-quarter of a square mile). Each day approximately 14 million flowers and 1 million potted plants are auctioned. That means 3 billion flowers and 400 million plants annually from some 8,000 nurseries. The complex includes five auction halls where 13 auction clocks operate simultaneously in a process of a Dutch auction

There are many bridges in the United States known as Crybaby Bridge. Most are named this because the sound of a baby can be, or has been, heard from the bridge. Most are accompanied by an urban legend of a baby or young child/children being killed nearby, or thrown from the bridge into the river or creek below

As far as the crybaby bridgees go, I have found that any time I am near running water the mind can be tricked into hearing all sorts of sounds. I have never heard of a crybaby bridge before, but I bet that the next time I'm by a river or stream, I'll be able to pick out the sounds of crying. People almost always think they can hear voices at rivers and streams.
