Old Croton Aqueduct at Ossining – Weir Tour

Saturday, July 16, 2016 - 10:00am

Meet at the Joseph Caputo Community Center, view a short film about history of the Aqueduct, and walk to the nearby Weir at the north end of the Double Arch Bridge in Ossining. There you will descend into the original 1842 brick water tunnel and see this marvel of mid-19th Century engineering for yourself.  You may wish to visit on your own the nearby new walkway along the Sing Sing Kill under the Aqueduct Arch. Parking is available near the Joseph Caputo Community Center. Address: 95 Broadway, Ossining, NY 10562, just west of Rte. 9/Highland Ave. at the junction of Croton Ave. (Rte. 133) (from Ossining Metro-North Train Station by taxi or 15-minute uphill walk). No reservations necessary. Inquiries: Jean Horkans, jhorkans@verizon.net.
