About this Event:

After decades of being closed off to the public, the High Bridge Water Tower is finally open and you can join a special-access experience just for our Insiders. This Ranger-led tour will bring you inside one of NYC’s most stunning architectural marvels from the 1870’s. Turning 150 years old this year, the tower was built to bring clean drinking water from the Croton Reservoir to Upper Manhattan, this tower standing 200ft tall above the bluffs of Washington Heights has some of the stunning and unique views of the city. Don’t miss this opportunity to step inside history.

PLEASE NOTE: To access the top of the tower you will have to walk hundreds of steps both up and down. You will be able to take it your own pace but if mobility on steps are an issue this tour may be prohibitive for you.
