Old NYC Water Supply Walk - NYC H20

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 - 6:30pm

with Sidney Horenstein

The City's earliest quests for clean and reliable water started in Lower Manhattan. Come walk that history and see how the City's rapid expansion eventually spurred building the much-needed Croton System. We begin our walking tour at the City Hall Park fountain where we will learn about the New York City's initial efforts to provide pure, reliable water to its citizens. The original fountain was the center piece for the 1842 celebration for the opening of the Croton Aqueduct. 

Light rain we walk. Heavy rain postpones til Sept 28 at 6:30 pm.
