Yesterday we noted that the Highbridge Park path was unveiled after undergoing a $4.2 million makeover. The High Bridge, which the has been closed for around 30 years, will undergo a $60 million renovation and will reopen as a pedestrian bridge. The bridge connects Manhattan and the Bronx and is located at 174th and Amsterdam Ave in Highbridge Park in Manhattan and at West 170th, University Avenue & Highbridge in the Bronx. Besides the access trail from 165th and Edgecombe Avenue, the a staircase leading to the High Bridge Water Tower was also restored.
The High Bridge was, according to the city, the first aqueduct of its kind in the United States and brought potable water from the Croton River in Westchester to Manhattan. Here's a virtual tour of the Old Croton Water Trail.
