High Bridge: 2301 Amsterdam Ave

Join NYC H2O and the Urban Park Rangers to learn the history of the recently restored 1872 High Bridge Tower and its impact on uptown.

The High Bridge reopened as a walkway in summer 2015 after a renovation. Join Bryan Diffley, the Project Manager of the renovation, for a tour of NYC's oldest standing bridge. An engineering treasure, it was built in 1848 to bring water from the Bronx into Manhattan via the Croton Aqueduct. 

The High Bridge remained in use for the Croton system until December 1958. Its deck was used as a pedestrian bridge until the 1970's, when it was closed due to vandalism. The city began restoring the bridge in 2012.
