Highbridge is Open

The Highbridge was built as a part of the Croton Aqueduct, carrying water into New York City from northern Westchester Country.  The ambitious project, imperial in scale was built in grand Roman styling, signaling that the great city’s water trouble was over.  Spanning the Hudson, it was the first crossing to do so.  The Highbridge fell into great disrepair and was closed for 45 years.  Finally it was re-opened for the citizens of New York to enjoy once again the majestic views and connect neighborhoods separated by years of neglect.
