This is the 2nd edition of the award-winning map that the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct, Inc. first published in 1998. It is a two-sided color map and guide of the trail that highlights its history, includes more detail on navigating the more difficult sections of the trail and important sites of interest along the way.

The map includes these added features:
• It shows you where the original Croton Dam was built
• It shows the new access to the trail through Tarrytown's Gracemere Park, across from Lyndhurst
• It shows a shorter, easier way to access the Tibbetts Brook Park section of the trail in Yonkers
• Enlarged insets of tricky areas have been fine-tuned plus a new inset showing the north end of the trail

Map - New York City Section

The Friends published a map and guide of the Aqueduct from the Yonkers-New York City line to its distributing reservoir, at the present site of the New York Public Library in Manhattan.

The map completes the story of the 1842 engineering marvel, 41 miles in total, that brought New York City its first supply of clean, plentiful water and thus contributed to its rapid growth. At the time, the developed part of New York City, the area first served by Croton water, consisted of Manhattan Island from the Battery to about 20th Street.

From the city line there is a visible walking route through the city parkland, paved and unpaved, atop parts of the Aqueduct’s six to seven mile course through the Bronx, which in 1842 was still part of Westchester County. The water tunnel then crossed the Harlem River on the High Bridge, the city’s oldest existing bridge, and entered Manhattan in what is now High Bridge Park, where there remains about a mile of visible trail. One then needs a guide to “read” and follow southward the handful of remaining traces of the Aqueduct’s presence.
