Considered an engineering marvel of the day, High Bridge is a classic example of how an ancient system of water technology can play a major role in the expansion of a metropolis. It is the oldest bridge standing in New York City and after so many years of disuse, it is under renovation and slated to open for pedestrian traffic in the near future. To keep the momentum going, Bronx Co. Historical Society Educator Angel Hernandez will lead a historic walking tour of the High Bridge neighborhood with an inclusion of other historic items throughout the area. This tour will start at the foot of Tthe Bronx-bound staircase of the 167th Street #4 subway station located at the northeast corner. Bronx buses #35, #1, and #2 run near the tour meeting location and it will terminate there as well.
