Dionisio Cortes Ortega, a NYS Registered Architect, has created a sculpture entitled Croton Arch of Triumph (Croton Arch of Triumph), which can be found at the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, It is a monument to the Old Croton Aqueduct System. In her words, "The inspiration for the sculpture came from a book that Kevin Bone, a professor and architect from The Cooper Union, wrote called Water Works. The book has a great account of the entire NYC water system history.”

She is looking forward to actually getting on the Aqueduct Trail on a Friends’ guided tour this October.
