Did you know that the High Bridge is New York City's oldest bridge? Built in 1848 as part of the original Croton Aqueduct, it carried water over the Harlem River from the Bronx into Manhattan. 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. It reopened as a walkway in summer 2015 after a renovation.

Join engineer Bryan Diffley, the Project Manager of the renovation, for a walking tour of this history.
