About the event:
Join Untapped New York’s Chief Experience Officer, Justin Rivers, for a virtual walk over Manhattan’s oldest surviving bridge in Manhattan. In 1848 the High Bridge was built to bring water to the burgeoning city of New York. Aside from transporting much-needed clean water, the bridge connected the metropolitan borough of Manhattan to the lush rural area of the Bronx, so that both city dwellers and those who lived in the country could easily travel back and forth. After being closed for over forty years, the bridge, built in the style of ancient Roman aqueducts, was opened to pedestrians in the summer of 2015.
